What do you people think of the new upgraded Aqua interface?
i reckon it's heaps better. at first i didn't notice any differences, and i still don't really notice them now. all the things they changed are good. i like it alot!
Here are the differences...
...(isn't Interface Builder great?). The one on the left is Jaguar, the right is 10.1.5. Sorry it's a bit small, it was either that or turn the quality down, and it was harder to see at low quality than low size.
i guess my opinion just changes with my mood... at times i love the new interface and at other times i like the 10.1 style widgets...
but that's why i dual boot between the two
I like 10.2's new swirly thing. I don't like the new buttons as much.
they both look very nice, but maybe apple decided on the new theme cause it took up less power, but personally I like new interface
i think it'll be better
This is a dumb question, but...
Will programs automatically have the new Jaguar look, or will the programs themselves have to be upgraded too?
Re: This is a dumb question, but...
i read somewhere that nearly all apps will have the look without any updates if they were coded to use some standard (this is most definitely not as technical as i remember reading but i don't remember the details )
hopefully we'll see it in action in all apps this macworld!
I think that the buttons with less of a shadow has been done because of the graphic cpu problems.
Look at it this way, if a game you are playing has a ton of shadows etc
then it takes massive CPU time to render it.
I think that one of the ways to speeding things up is to take away a bit of the eyecandy. If it speeds up the OS then its worth it, it can always be brought back when CPU speeds increase and there is more RAM on graphics cards!
I dont think that in daily use its going to mean that much that the buttons dont have a shadow.
At least it isnt XP! whew
The only shadow there is the SHADOW OF DOOM!
...but the button shadows aren't actually shadows. They're just pictures of shadows, so they don't take up more CPU time than any other picture. I think the changes are purely cosmetic.
I thought that the shadows were actually transparency's
and had to be rendered in a particular method.
