Graphite vs. Blue

Posted:
in General Discussion edited January 2014
I've always used "Blue" as the system them, but just the other day I thought I should mix it up, so now I'm using graphite. It's a nice change. Definitely work a try y'all. Esp when used with the Aqua Graphite desktop.



What do other people use?

    It upsets me - don't know why/how, but it just does.

    Personally I can't wait for Aqua to die, Leopard should kill most of it.

    I wish there was more colorset choice than Graphite and Aqua. My God! A beautiful OS and the only UI config you can do is grey or blue.



    Plenty of other schemes that could have been available.

    I was like that a few times but the candy colored resize/close buttons are annoying me so I am going to give graphite a good go. I didn't like it before because the buttons don't stand out so much - the graphite is similar to the dark color used on this forum - but I don't mind so much now. I've been dying for a more professional look and between graphite and Uno, I think it's as close as I will get without some theme manager.

    I just hate it...I don't know why. It makes everything blend in too much or something. I have a dark desktop right now...that could be it.

    I like having color window widgets. In graphite I make m ore mistakes when minimizing or zooming windows.

    Back when I was saving up for my first Mac (around 2001) I would play around with the ones in shops and I would always change the system to Graphite and wonder if there was a setting to make all windows Brushed Metal.



    After I bought my first Mac I could not use Graphite for more than about half an hour before I switched it back to Blue.



    Strange how when I never used it all the time, Graphite was nice, but will full time use, for me, it has to be Blue.
