    Hi,

    Just 2 quick questions about Leopard:

    1. Apple have dropped Brushed Metal in Leopard, so what will happen if I was to open an App with Brushed Metal in Leopard?

    2. Will iLife '06 and iWork '06 work in Leopard?

    Thanks.

    Brushed metal apps will not look brushed in Leopard

    iLife and iWork 06 will work in Leopard :)

    I also still have iLife '06 as I felt no need to get iLife '08 just yet.

    They should work together as iLife '08 is still very new, but I'm still curious if more of the knowledgeable members can chime in.

    Good,

    Brushed Metal looks terrible in my opinion.

    Thanks for the reply!

    Too late now, but UNO gets rid of brushed metal in Tiger, and its free!

    BTW, for those who use iLife 06, IMO 08 is a great upgrade :)

    Do we know this for sure? i thought the interface graphics were optionally bundled inside the app? AFAIK apps can still look brushed metal, its just that apple has unified the software that comes with leopard.

    I know that you could use safari as an example of an app thats brushed in tiger and not in Leopard but I'm pretty sure that Leopard Safari is either a unique build or it detects Leopard. Otherwise we would see webclips in Tigers Safari.

    Uno stopped working with the newer updates of Tiger and iTunes and they didn't update it forever. I don't think they have yet.

    I had considered "UNO" but I didn't like the idea that it was messing around with system and Apps main files.
