I haven't seen anyone post on this, but to me, it's one of the most important things I've noticed with Panther. The change from the beautiful, smooth, and blended look of the aqua Finder, to a the new chunky, stuck out, brushed metal style almost makes me want to stay at with Jaguar. The one thing that has really made me admire Mac OS X was the aqua GUI. So when I first checked out the the Preview of Panther on Apples site, my heart sank when I saw The new Finder. The metal look is alright for applications, but to embed it into the operating system really disappoints me. So much I even sent them feedback suggesting they add a pane to the system preferences to select your finder interface. What do the rest of your think about this? I've barely heard anything from other people on this topic.
