    I'm hoping it won't be too different the Eye candy on Mac OSX is already sufficeint. And well,....they can't really regress., its just not what they do.
    Then again it's Apple so don't take my word for it..........Think Different!!:D

    I'm hoping that they will not overdo transparency like microsoft did w/ Vista. It's only a temporary turn on.

    I'd be cool if they added a little animated mac cartoon in the bottom right hand corner, to help you out with hints and stuff. Or added sound effects to every thing such as chirp everytime a key is hit, or swooshing sound each time you open a folder.

    Actually, that would really *suck*. :p

    they already did transparency, it was a bit sucky so it went, well, you can see it in some things slightly still, but not like it was before on unselected windows.

    After the recent iTunes 7 update and my subsequent dissappointment, I will wait before jumping on the bus to Leopard. Still looking for my favorite features of iTunes 6.:confused: I have lost my confidence that newer is better after 10.4.8.

    Just so long as the jelly beans go and we get a consistent interface. The menu bar just looks crappy when contrasted with the metal finish of Safari. And yet, the Uno thing goes a tad overboard by changing the look of the menus dreadfully. Also, like graphite, we get a straight blue x - + buttons.

    So true! Transparency SUCKS. I can't use it with Vista for more than 30 minutes at a time before I get a headache.

    Not when they use it well e.g. Brightness/Sound levels and changes in desktops using VirtueDesktops.

    As the only person in the universe who likes the look of itunes 7, i would welcome leopard having features in terms of look being very similar to itunes 7. who knows, you may be able to cover flow images in the finder.:rolleyes:

    Question: Why do people not like the "jelly beans"? I like them! Same with the + - x buttons at the top.

    I suspect that Leopard will look very much like Tiger but with a few added things (like the search bar in Safari).

    I had thought of the usefulness of coverflow in the finder as well. I think it would be useful if it really worked well. Annoying if it was slow to load up. The finder is horribly inept in terms of thumbnails/previews and viewing images as it stands now.

    It would be cool for instance if you could right click the desktop and pull up a coverflow overlay of your other desktop images and just switch it like that.

    And yes, iTunes 7 is fugly.

    I like "jelly beans" as long as they aren't way overdone. I like the way the aqua buttons in OS X look.

    I'd really like a consistent look for the interface. I like the "jelly bean" buttons the way they are, now that it's been 5+ years. They're not all that disruptive--not as disruptive as the brushed metal is. I'd expect GarageBand to retain its look and feel because music production applications have been very independent since the mid-1980s.

    If the resolution independence is activated at first, I'll probably be surprised by the size of the icons and various dialog elements. It's something for which we design applications in Java but it hasn't been something for the major operating system interfaces until now.

    Good surprises are coming in 2007.
