Menu transparency

Menus look a lot nicer with their increased opacity. That was one of my pet peeves. Perhaps in the next release they will be even more opaque, and even more readable? Who knows. One thing I do know is that Apple isn't interested in letting me decide for myself.

I almost feel like I should apologize for always posting negative comments about OS X, but I suppose I get worked up about things like this because OS X is so sound architecturally, and I do kind of like it, but there are many small things ("one liners") that, if this was a more open system, would be easy to fix. I think what Apple is doing is that they want a Mac user to be able to sit down at any Mac anywhere and just work, and know where everything is - like you can operate any car if only you've learned the basics once. The problem, of course, is that people are different, and want to be able to customize their work environment.

Enough ranting, this update seems like a step in the right direction and I will continue to explore it right now.
