Anyone think this new Dashboard interface is going to carry over to iOS as a "home screen" to the left of the search screen? Instead of live widget right on the main homescreen?

This really didn't need its own thread. Many screenshots have already been posted. Thanks for contributing, though.

Maybe for the iPad. Apps are already widget-sized for the iPhone.

I do not like the new close/minimize/zoom buttons at all.

I've been using them for a while now thanks to SnowTunes, a great UI tweak from the guys over on MacThemes.

I don't like black/white icons at Finder side panel, colored ones from SL are way nicer.

It's basically brought everything in line with iTunes 9, much like SnowTunes did.

iTunes lost the coloured icons, and now the Finder has had the same treatment.

It looks "clinical", but one thing I do not like is the new Quick Look window.

It's gone from a nice black, semi-transparent interface to a grey window with a full screen button and option to open in Preview. Sure, it matches the rest of the OS, but I love opening a movie file in Snow Leopard and having the nice black, rounded corner window.

As for Launchpad, the whole thing seems like overkill. Sure, it looks gorgeous in terms of UI, but to open it you need to either click on a dock icon or a predetermined hot corner. By the time you do that, you could click on the icon for the actual app you want to launch!

Sure, Launchpad will be good for apps that aren't on the dock, but opening Launchpad and seeing the same set of icons on the screen AND on the dock is over the top in my opinion.

Gesture to switch spaces is nice. Or is it ore existing, I've never seen it?

It's horrible that the icon names in Launch Pad can't even display two lines of text. You can't even read "After Effects" under the After Effects icon, because all you see is "Adobe Af...ects CS5". As if there wasn't enough space to display the full file name in that gigantic blank space under each icon?

Could someone report this as a bug/annoyance please?
