Mac OS X OSNews reviews Apple's latest OS upgrade. Is it an overpriced, glorified point release or a truly worthy upgrade with major new functionality? Is it a Longhorn killer or just more of the same? We'll take a look, and try to see what's on the surface as well as what's under the hood.

"Give me good, sound reasons why you (anyone) thinks the brushed metal theme is so hideous!"

That's kind of a silly question. How can anyone give you a "sound reason" for their subjective opinion about a purely aesthetic issue. People don't like it because they think it looks dumb or ugly. End of story. Sure, some people note that Apple originally used it for audio/video players that were supposed to look like components, and that metaphor made some sense, but as they expanded its use, it broke the metaphor. But when it comes down to it, I just don't like the look very much. If I could turn it off without dangerous hacks, I would.
