    I hear what you are saying and I agree but I bet you will not see any UI change until OS 11.0. I really would like Apple to update the UI and make it all consistent as well as improve the Finder. But I believe Apple is going to stick it out with this current UI theme until 11.0....

    (but here's hoping it's earlier than that)

    You've been able to do this for many years. Finder > Preferences > Uncheck Hard-disk drives.



    Wow thanks, did not know that.

    What an assinine post.



    There's nothing wrong with bitching about aqua assets still in Snow Leopard- especially since they apparently recoded a very large portion of the OS. Aqua scrollbars+buttons look ugly as hell at this point, and clash with everything else in the OS. They need to go, and I'll be appalled if they leave them there for the final version of SL. It takes me a few seconds to replace the scrollbar files to those from itunes, so seriously, how hard could it be for Apple? They already have the assets.



    People like you are the most irritating kind. Someone can't criticize a specific aspect of a product, without being called 'bitching', 'ungrateful', etc. Pathetic. The way some of you apologize for Apple at every turn is frightening. We criticize because we want Apple to improve and release the best products they can. I wouldn't be criticizing anything if I didn't give a shit. Its not like asking for 10 year old, system wide assets to be visually updated (especially when updating them is a relatively simple thing to do) is demanding.

    The winter tree wallpaper in the screenshots looks great!



    Can't imagine if Snow Leopard released with the same sort of funky/wacky wallpapers in Win7 RC1. 0_0

    You can download a million wallpapers in all kinds of sizes off the net. Just wander around Interfacelift, for instance.



    Does it really matter whether SL includes new wallpapers?

    10.7 - est 2011

    10.8 - est 2013

    10.9 - est 2015

    11.0 - est 2017



    You really think there will be no UI changes (significant) in 8 years?

    Your efforts are appreciated, but - sadly - misplaced. None of the posters that have presented this stance have ever listened to any other point of view (on the subject). Those that can't see the virtue of real improvement should be left to sleep it off. (IMO)

    I've got 2 G5's and a 867 G4 Laptop so at the moment that $30 doesn't get me much.

    Let me know where I can pick up a few of those $30 new computers to swap my G5's and Laptop.

    Leopard's UI (as it is now in SL) is just fine. It's very clean, very easy on the eyes, and is characteristic of subtle elegance.



    Or would you prefer Windows 7, which looks like a multiple-clown homicide. Colours all over the place, transparency-glass-hell. Looks like it was designed by Flava Flav on a bender.



    OK MULTIPLE CHOICE TEST . which one below is not one of the nine gates of hell ??





    a >> Windows 7

    b >> multiple-clown homicide

    c >> transparency-glass-hell.

    e >> Flava Flav on a bender

    Here's classic doublespeak from Apple. Quicktime's new "less intrusive" view - look now, putting controllers RIGHT ON TOP OF THE CONTENT is NOT "LESS" intrusive. In fact it obscures the actual content even more! Now I have to put my cursor over top of the movie to see how much I've watched or the timecode or to pause it etc. Of course it fades away and that is OK. Also take close look at the images, the QT title bar actually ALSO intrudes into the movie view, not above/outside the image content. But I never had a problem with the old quicktime play/pause/rr/ff buttons or the time marker playhead etc. If I wanted to see it full screen I use full screen mode and it all goes away including my desktop. But now the controller is SMALLER and therefore LESS ACCURATE.

    (My comments based only on screenshots and descriptions not of any actual use).

    Maybe there is a Pro mode, or edit mode can be more frame accurate. Or maybe I'll just have to use VLC for everything and hope they keep improving that.

    Apple's innovative but I really hate their continual de-professionalizing of everything.

    Well tell us exactly what you want them to do?

    I still don't understand why they haven't been changed to match the iTunes scroll bars, which fit in much better with the Snow Leopard interface.



    So because it looks ugly for you, and the ones in Itunes looks good to you, it holds true for everyone?

    I don?t think he read your post well. I think he assumed the ?11? was a reference to it being impossible to offer a point update that numbered paste 10, hence the Wiki page to Tiger.

    It's not doublespeak. They have their point of view upon the matter and you have yours.

    Isn't this the way it works right now when watching in full-screen mode?

    Not sure what part of what he wrote was wrong.



    We get a new OS every 2 or 2.5 years.
