That screensaver, arabesque, looks extremely nice.

Need to fix this link because when i click on it from this thread it doesn't work.

October for this?

It has the feeling of going backwards, I do not like the grey. Or maybe I am just in a bad mood

Looks like they just removed the brushed metal and made it grey. Just like iTunes is right now.

Cool.

EDIT: Oh, they made everything grey? Even things that were once white, like system preferences?

Not sure how fond I am of that.

I like the new look. Looks like Photobooth can do video effects now to. Either that or record video.

Love that new screensaver.

HaHa... I accadentally clicked the screenshot's close button when trying to close the window. oops. I'm dumb.

I like the new spotlight. We all kinda saw this transition coming though... didnt we?

I think they released the new UI to give everyone something to talk about apart from the fact that it is going to be delayed. Sort of proof that they are making progress after all Apple new this was going to be leaked.

I do not think this will be the final UI definitely needs work.

Guys, you obviously don't understand, it takes months to remove the brushed metal effect. Each window must be hand buffed and finished until it's perfectly smooth.

Finder windows still have ugly borders while other apps are going borderless (eg iChat). Did Apple leave anyone working on Leopard over the last 6 months, or was it one guy fiddling with colours while everyone else worked on the iPhone. :(

Are there any other sources on this? If not, I'm not 100% sure I believe it. It just looks like someone got Uno, which I use, working on OS X 10.5.

If it's true and it's catching up with iTunes, that'll be great. I just don't think that's the direction Apple will go in the end...

I haven't had any brushed metal on my Mac for about a year now. I actually got so used to the mod that I almost forgot Apple still hasn't changed it yet. I still can't believe Leopard is delayed because of the iPhone. Apple needs to get their priorities straight. :rolleyes:

I don't know. In some places, it looks out of place. In spots, it looks gray, dull, and boring. It works for iTunes, but I don't know about everywhere else. I miss colors and glass :(

Interesting. I find it odd that the windows aren't rounded on the edges anymore.

I think we all knew it was going to go this way, a la iTunes and UNO. I'm surprised the buttons are the same. I would've thought they would have gone to that lavendar/grey color found in iTunes 7 and throughout the iPhone.

This, however, seems like not that big of a change. Is a bigger one coming? I like to think so.

the hazy pattern of the screenshots appear to be an artifact of Leopard's screenshot tool.
Wow. I hope the haziness doesn't include a watermark identifying the developer who did the screenshot, or the serial number of his Mac...
