    I don't get it. It seems it would've been pretty easy for the SL-team to replace those dated, ugly aqua buttons and scroll-bars with the new sexy glossy-black look that is present in the stacks (button and scrollbar). They could've also replaced the ugly whitish menu with the hotter dark look of the dock and stacks menu.

    Shame.

    Go to System Preferences, Appearance and change Appearance to graphite. It's not exactly what you want, because you don't get everything you want in life. I want Windows to not cost as much as the machine itself and stop sucking like heck but does it? No.

    Snow Kitty, worse than those tools calling their unibodies "classic".

    You can always give yourself the Illuminous-style scroll bars.

    Yes i know how to change those scrollbars. In fact my os-x sports lovely glossy/ black scrollbars. But i wish those ugly aqua buttons and radio-buttons and elements would finally disappear too.

    Excited about Snow Kitty though.

    I came to OS X kinda late (Leopard), but I *love* the Aqua look, and I think the new scrollbars in iTunes look dull and bland.

    If this new rumored theme (Marble) will actually look like marble tile, then I'll be happy to switch to it. (I know it's not gonna be in Snow Leopard, but hopefully will be in 10.7 ...)

    MBX: How were you able to change the scrollbars to black? Sounds interesting...Candybar? Can you post a shot?

    Ergh, I hate it when people try to give their own nicknames to products.

    It's spelt "KITTEH"... :D

    Or give the option of scroll bars. I like aqua and hate marble. To each his own.

    Maybe it's a play, and it allows for them to introduce it with a new product. Apple has a habit of adding features at their speed. Could, should, would...

    I like the aqua bezel. It's better than that bland crap iTunes uses.

    I use the iLeopard theme. It's a little rough in places––namely the graphite title bar buttons--but it works pretty well.
