Yosemite is Beautiful

I've been using it for only 30 minutes so far but it's quite stunning. The interface "refinement" (is what I'll call it) was well needed. What are your thoughts?

After running all for DP's for the last few months I agree with you. Wait till you get a load of Safari 8.0. Super fast and badass! UI is clean, refined and simplified to put your work and 'content' first, much like iOS 7 is when compared to iOS 6. Glad you're liking it.

I can't wait. Safari does seem super snappy and response. How is the App Store? Prior to Yosemite, I personally had tons of lag in App Store. Also do you know if we (public testers) got an earlier build of Yosemite? I still don't have the new iTunes icon + iTunes interface.

Yosemite reminds me of a corpse. Lifeless dull look.

Beta peeps got a build with a higher number then the DP folks. DP4 = 14A298i / Beta1 = 14A299i. There really isn't much difference if any but yours is higher. Damn you! As for the App Store, I have no lag but then I didn't have lag under Mavericks either so...

Mixed feelings. Some of it I like, some of it, not so much. Though I must say, the graphite theme (what I've always used) is a *lot* nicer. The sidebar transparency doesn't bother me as much as I thought it would.

Folders are horrid, and the new UI animations, while cool, are a little slow. Helvetica is awesome, but it's annoying having some apps like Tweetbot not use it for the moment. It is clearly not done––the aqua pinwheel looks ridiculous with the new UI, for example––and it'll be interesting to see how they refine it.

The default buttons don't animate anymore, which is going to get some getting used to. Whenever I see one I think for a second that my computer has frozen.

one thing i don't like about it so far is when you click on the applications folder on the dock, the background behind all of your apps just doesn't look right, should be translucent like the rest of the OS

Are you able to connect to App Store? I had to try at least 20x before it did.

Nope it appears to be broken at the moment.

So far I have mixed feelings. It looks ok on my iMac but it IS very hard to read.

Also why are some top bars translucent and others not?

Thanks!

Also, my entire screen just went gray whilst using the settings app. The entire desktop shifted upwards and then the screen went entirely gray. All that could be seen was the basic outlines of the apps that were open, menu bar and dock...

Tried submitting feedback but it's not working.
