    I know that the first beta of Lion was released this morning, and Apple's preview of Lion from their website still references Aqua (and so do all the screen shots), but wile searching google for any new Mac OS X Lion Wallpapers, I came across this article and thought I would share.

    Even though I have my doubts of the screen shots authenticity (and Gizmodo reporting this), I thought it might be a fun discussion if you guys think Apple should make the Menu Bar on top Black Translucent like from iOS?

    Easy as hell to modify Snow Leopard to look like that. I'm calling fake. The only UI changes we know of are whats in the beta. That opaque dock looks terribad.

    I'm going to also call fake. I don't think apple is going to ditch the glossy shelf for apps in your dock. Even iOS has the glass shelf for apps on your homepage. But I can see apple changing the UI a little bit more. The black menu bar maybe... you see that effect in quicktime as it is right now.

    I call this fake, but could see there being more UI changes when Lion RTMs in the summer.

    Apple has done so much work in tweaking the UI in Lion, that I don't see them completing overhauling it.

    Wow this is the same site that has zero credibility with Apple.

    Gizmodo is a trash site, that exploits extreme means to do dishonest practices.

    verdict: fake, uninspired, and not different.
