    i've noticed on several websites regarding the "brushed-aluminum" trim on the application windows on the MacOS X Panther. but, when I used my friends new PowerBook G4 15" w/ Panther installed, it had the old traditional snowy-white trim.

    is there a setting where you can select brushed aluminum trim on ALL of the applications windows/toolbars? i really like it, and it seems as though it is only offered on iTunes, and iChat.

    if so, that would be great. i really love that design (although i have heard that not too many Mac-fans out there like it)

    The main fuss about brushed aluminum in Panther was related to the Finder (which was previously the standard white). All applications that weren't metal before still aren't.

    so it's only the finder? (w/o metalifizer)

    so it's only on the finder (which contains what again? heh heh he i'm not that familiar with these things...)

    i was confused because on the apple website, they make it seem as though it is on all windows...

    i'm sorry...

    this is a really dumb question (but not for me)
    what is exactly the 'finder' on MacOS?

    i'm not really sure... please don't laugh at me- i asked this question before to someone at CompUSA and the salesman laughed at me and thought i was joking :(

    I think it's the same thing as 'explorer' in Windoze.

    THAT'S IT????

    geez... i thought Apple did more than just put the metal trim on the finder! i initially beleved it was on Safari, iChat, iTunes... guess just finder then.

    You are correct, but those things already had brushed metal interfaces in Jaguar. Finder is the only app that has been "newly" skinned in aluminum in 10.3.
