    does any1 else think that the icon for bootcamp might lead to the icon/box art for leopard?

    Notice the "X" in the middle of the 4 boxes?

    I can see Apple moving towards that style but I doubt they'd outright copy the Windows symbol people. It still seems like we'll be seeing more of that flat grey look. I like it, that's why I use UNO. :p

    Nice!! I am really starting to get tired of the whole "brushed metal" look of OS X. I like the new look they are going for with iPhoto, iTunes, etc. I am going to download and install this.......when I get back home. :)

    I bet it's a Trademark thing. Legally, they probably couldn't use thee "real" windows logo without having to pay money. SO, the rotated it a few degrees and made it brushed metal.

    That look more of a windows thing than a X...i think they will stick to the black box with the big X on it....just change the script.


    Bless

    I cant see them staying with the flat grey look as it stands now. While more functional, it loses in the eye candy stakes to aero glass. And I really cant see Mr Jobs standing for that!

    I hope that is not the look of the Leopard discs, they look so plain. I love the look of the Tiger discs, with the spotlight in the middle, really gives a quick idea of what is new in this version.

    How do we know what new features Leopard is packing? Maybe Leopard is introducing iBondage, what with the leather straps and all on the disc...

    Its probably got something to do with the keyboard and mouse MS is doing for the Mac apparently they were not allowed to use the Apple symbol on the keyboard so this must be MS's reprise, by not letting Apple use the windows symbol.

    Could be wrong.

    :D

    I had the feeling/thought that Apple made the Boot Camp Windows logo grayscale to subtly put it down in comparison to Mac OS X. The Mac logo is a colored smiling face, while the windows logo is plain, boring, grayscale squares. It sort of fits in with the whole "dull little boxes, dull little tasks" thing.

    I think it is interesting that the icon they used for windoze is black & grey. Maybe refering to the blandless, lack of personality and lack of culture?

    Just a thought.
