    Haven't seen any more rumors about the socalled 'marble' UI, just wondering will we see a different UI in Snow Leopard from the current one?

    I don't think so, I wish though, I'm tired of the shinyness. I hope Architect is released soon so I can fix it myself.

    I hope they would at least get rid of the "tiny top bar" version of a window that has the three colored buttons about 3 pixel size each. I really hate that because it's hard to click on those buttons. The Fonts dialog in Pages is a good example but not the worst offender, I've seen ones with even smaller buttons.

    I like the distinction that those create. If you don't, just use key commands to close windows.

    Screenshots I've seen have slight UI refinements, but nothing real drastic. Too bad.

    Oh I agree. The Tiny Top Bar seems like a not well-thoughtout solution for smaller windows. Surely Apple come up with a better/easier looking solution.

    Like said before in other threads, Snow Leopard's UI changes are there but minimal - the rationale here is that since Apple will be dropping support for millions of PPC users, Apple will lessen the blow with few to little UI changes (something end-users really enjoy and easily notice).

    Snow Leopard is really a transition between Leopard and 10.7. Snow Leopard is laying the foundation for the rest of the OS X, hence no major end-user features or UI changes.
