I really hope that Apple doesn't get rid of Aqua entirely...that was one of their greatest ideas and I love that sort of cool, relaxed interface in X...while that's not to say that I don't like the graphite steel look (it's certainly sleeker and more industrial).
The new .mac has a rather simple texture. Maybe it's to convey the simplicity of .mac. I'd almost consider .mac if it was $75 cheaper or had a lot more storage space as in 500mb or 1 gig. I have a lot of pictures and 100 MB would go fast even if they're optimized.
Speaking of pictures they should offer a feature where a guest could buy prints of your pictures if they wanted. That way I wouldn't have to send them to my friends. However, that would require a lot more storage because you'd want to use the originals. They'd make money on the prints, so, it would probably pay for it self. Granted I could use Ofoto, shutterfly, or some other service, but I'd rather have one location.
I really dislike the new looks Apple has introduced on it's menu bar(s). Their old 'one look for all' was much more - dare I say it - grown up. It could get tacky - I mean can you imagine what they would do to the menu bar on a hypothetical 'Alpple Kids' page? ugh!
