    Ok, this may just be me, or something weird on my computer, but one of the changes in Leopard is the close/minimize/plus stoplight buttons on the top of each window. The new ones seem a bit brighter to me, but I noticed the ones on the iTunes window still have the slightly duller Tiger style....

    Has anyone else noticed this, or know a way to change it. I'm picky, I know..

    I think this implies that iTunes 8 is in progress :)

    You're right. That is the old Tiger style. Strange.

    I think the buttons in iTunes are a bit duller.

    Aww, the surprised tones are making me think there's not an easy way to change it. Oh well, iTunes 8 here we come :)

    Seems like this is something that affects Garageband, too.

    My guess is that this is because their design is different on the upper side (the pre-leopard leopard look of iTunes and the wood look of Garageband)
    They don't rely on the standard stoplight GUI (framework, library, API: I don't really know the word). And because of that, when this standard look changes, it affects only the programs that use this standard stuff.

    the easiest way to see the difference seems to be the top white reflection. In tiger, this is a blurred line, in Leopard it is a blurred point.
