    hmmmm. leopard.
    I don't know, I can't shake this feeling that I liked the look of Tigers layout more than leopards.

    For one thing, Leopard is copying vista's clear taskbar/whatever you call the mac version. I think this worked for vista, not for OSX..........
    I don't like the new dock either, it looks cheap and not classy like tigers one, although i do like the riflection. why is there no gap between the apps on the dock and the recycle bin? i liked this on tiger.
    also, as was said in another thread, if that grassy background is the new default background, then sheesh.

    also, anyone got a closer view of what the new apple logo looks like in the top right? seems to me they are attempting to push out aqua blue in place of that metallic mac pro look. this is okay i guess.

    Thoughts?

    I dunno, I kinda like it. The Menu Bar transparency will probably be configurable (though, perhaps not), but I think it looks pretty cool. And, it makes a certain degree of sense from an interface point of view. It's transparent, I think, so that the user can focus more on the opaque application windows, which is where his or her work is carried out. Thoughts on this?

    The Dock modification is completely natural, IMHO. I installed ClearDock because I thought Tiger's Dock looked too tacky, but I think Leopard's is far classier.

    Cool
    It looks like the icons are setting on a desktop or ledge.

    The new dock gives a more 3D feel, but I like my ClearDock more.

    So far it looks good, though I think going with black may have been a better idea than copying Vista's Aero Glass.

    I like how the Dock icons looks like they're sitting on a ledge.

    I love the new look! Though I am a bit curious on how the dock will look on the left side, as I've gotten pretty used to it on the left.

    Here's a closer look at the Apple logo. It's now black and a bit bigger i think.



    I'm also looking forward to "stacks". I think it's an awesome idea.

    ditto.
    maybe a clear background will be a built in option. if not, unsanity will hopefully update cleardock for 10.5 pretty quickly.

    Maybe each icon will have a little shelf! (posting from the new Win Safari on VISTA via Boot Camp, works fine so far but makes me feel uneasy)

    does this make you feel any more uneasy?

    I am on Safari 3 on a Dell P4 with 2GB ram. Works very well here. Just trying it out. Now back to my Mac.

    Leopard looks like a logical progression from Tigers interface to me. I certainly can't see any Vista-copying there at all. Everything seems a lot more subtle, instead of Vista bashing you over the head with pointless effects.

    The Menu bar might become more opaque when you actually click or move to it, which makes sense from a UI point of view, and also goes with the more prominent active window. The Mac UI tends to look confusing with a screen full of windows so I look forward to that bit.

    I hope this is a step towards replacing Aqua altogether, these blue things are starting to look naff, IMO.

    I like it I don't think enough to bother upgrading from Tiger but just at a natural time when it's time for a new machine, I'll definitely like it. I quite like the little ledge the icons are on, looks quite nice and clean.

    I've just been looking at some of the new features on http://www.apple.com/macosx/leopard/features/

    I think it looks great. (Although I'm not sure about that coverflow thing for the Finder...)
