    Lucida Grande is what OS X uses all over for its interface. I'm not sure I'd call it traditional though.

    Try this and this for some more details.

    The traditional font was a special varient of Garamond ITC light condensed (cos they "w" serifs and some other things looked different on theirs)

    now they use Myriad (of some sort)

    That would be me. The traditional font is called Apple Garamond. I got a copy from an old developer CD. Old versions of Mac OS X had it.

    It was not identical to Garamond (as in, simply Garamond condensed); it does have slight differences.

    The current font is Myriad Pro (as opposed to plain Myriad) - this can be purchased from Adobe.
