    9to5Mac has posted a new photograph showing a wave-themed banner with an X in the middle, similar to the iOS 7 banner that was revealed earlier today. The spartan and minimalistic banners are significant change from the style used in previous years, particularly the OS X banner below.

    The X appears to use the Helvetica Neue Ultra Light font, an extremely thin variant of Helvetica and the same font as the iOS 7 banner.

    As a designer (and forgetting this is going up at an Apple conference): that is beautiful.

    My God, Apple is so unoriginal now. Not only does it stench of Microsoft, the X makes the picture look like it was meant to be crossed out.

    My gut is telling me Clark Little took that photo. Love the look.

    OS X Liquid
    OS X Fluid
    OS X Splash?

    Those are my guesses.

    I agree.....they should be coming up with their own letters and numbers instead of copying the current english alphabet and alpha-numeric characters.

    How unoriginal!

    :rolleyes:

    My guess is that's going to be the default wallpaper for OSX.. Same with the iOS 7 banner's background..

    Looks like we're definitely getting an OSX 10.9 preview.

    Looks like white gaffer's tape. Maybe they're just marking it DNI.

    Everybody's worried about iOS, but I'm really excited about what OS X has in store for us this time.

    Wow, everything from desktops to laptops at Apple seem to be on a diet.
