    Dont know how many of you will care but..
    The wwdc leopard developer preview includes new higher resolution icons (512x512 to be precise) but something that may be of a little more interest is the new preview
    Yes.. it has the Tiger mail buttons
    (dont shoot the messenger)

    Ugh! I don't care about the buttons, but why do the icons still have the same old pinstriped look to them?

    Yeah, those blue folders look very 10.2 still.

    But why change Preview's buttons and why remove brushed metal from iChat if a new UI is on its way? I think all we're getting is resolution independence and the elimination of brushed metal.

    I agree, I was expecting them to finally have the smooth look of the FileMaker Pro folder icon on the product box.

    Honestly... that wouldn't bother me. I don't understand why people seem to think that Tiger has an outdated look. It doesn't in my eyes.

    New features are always appreciated though, as long as they're tasteful :p .

    LOL! You lot should be grateful for the pretty icons and toolbars that you've already got. They're ten times better than what Microsoft has for us poor buggers on t'other side.

    Ugh I hate the pinstripe look as well.
    But it's nothing. There's always CandyBar if the worst comes to the worst . . .

    I like the pinstripes actually.

    Maybe its because I stuck with Mac OS 8.5 and XP until Tiger came out, then I upgraded.
