    I do. With tiger, we dont seem to have as much of the transparency, or vibrant colors as the original Aqua. While the new Aqua is nice in some places, it seems like it would be nice to have the old Aqua back.

    Do you perfer the new Aqua to the old, or the other way around?

    I like the latest aqua, but would hate inconsistency without UNO :)

    I agree with this to a point and I did love the old aqua buttons.

    There is too much inconsistency, everyone knows it.

    :) go UNO. A really very useful app. I wonder how it works...

    Hmm... I'm not sure if I can agree with you here. I like the new Aqua (and especially the future Leopard whateveritis).
    The old Aqua has its charms though. The colours, were, as you said, much brighter. I did like the old Apple logo, too.
    Ah well.

    Not sure if I like the sound of this.

    You are my new best friend.


    Its apps like these(Quickshareit, Quicksilver, Xtorrent (before you had to pay for it)) that remind me of why I love OSX

    Add Inquisitor and Adium to that list and maybe ChocoFlop, and we have the perfect examples :)

    I'm still digging around in the app. I'm still surprised that they decided to put the entire UNO app inside of one applescript. Usually for a big project I like to split off pieces, depending on what task they are meant to do (client display, database access, stored queries, etc...) so that I don't get lost in the forest.

    I use Uno, and it looks great.

    It looks especially great on iTunes to. Its perfectly safe. ;)

    I've tried shapeshifter for a while but UNO is much better, it leaves the GUI clean and I don't notice any kind of "delay" regarding my normal OSX usage.

    It even patches the graphics that appear in the login window, which is great because the login window matches the color scheme you've picked for the GUI :)

    I only have a problem with it. With CS3 apps, especially Flash, it's full of wrong colored grey areas around the properties panel and etc, nothing too big. Still, it shouldn't happen righ? But I don't know, maybe the fault in on Adobe's side because everything else runs 100% with UNO.

    Humm, I prefer the look of Tiger compared to Panther, I work everyday on OS 10.3.9 and when I come home to 10.4.9 I feel a warm sensation inside. lmao!

    At this point in time, my main objection to UNO is that it's code is contained within one big applescript file.

    Just to give you an idea, here's a screenshot.

    I usually split my code up into smaller seperate pieces that deal with different functions of the application. That way I don't get lost in the forest.
