Hello & welcome to the forum!

Apple has basically eliminated the skeuomorphism from its OSs (see Apple's iOS7, Well, It Was Time For Skeuomorphism To Die - Forbes) w/ their release of iOS 7 and now w/ Mavericks which is also taking on more of the features (and apps) from iOS 7. Many have (and will) miss all of the faux details (yellow paper, leather, simulated wood, etc.) but I doubt that these appearances will return - for myself (and wife), we have completely adjusted to iOS 7 on our iPads and the new appearance of Notes is fine w/ me. So the issue in part is simply personal preferences. Now, I don't use the 'Activity Monitor' much but look forward to comments from others. Dave :
