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 )Originally posted by cleo
Will programs automatically have the new Jaguar look, or will the programs themselves have to be upgraded too?
...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.Originally posted by Grokgod
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!
