Mac OS X As you have surely noticed by now, Apple's CEO Steve Jobs held his keynote speech yesterday at Apple's Worldwide Developers Conference in San Francisco. So far, the responses have been mixed; I have seen a lot of excitement, but also a lot of disappointment. Personally, I am not really sure where I stand.

Did you notice in the keynote that, when Steve Jobs changed the slide after announcing a "new desktop" and revealed the ridiculous transparency and the looking-glass dock, people laughed? It's very clearly heard. People in the audience thought he was joking. I would have thought he was joking if I hadn't seen it on the Apple website first.

Indeed, Alex, I thought I was crazy for thinking that ;) . Good to read I'm not alone on this one.

Ihateit Ihateit Ihateit. I came here looking to bond with others who hated it as well, but the general response seems positive. In my opinion, the menu bar looks like something I used to make dabbling in Ulead Photoimpact. Amateurish is an understatement--it's unusable (for so many reasons). If someone were to tell me it was from a "fake Leopard screenshot contest," I wouldn't bat an eyelash.

Ironically, when it came out, I thought Tiger's aqua-fying of the menu bar was as bad as it could get. They sure showed me.
