    There is yet another interface by Apple. The new iTunes 5.0 comes with a darker version of the unified look. A larger, 'curved' LCD window, similiar to many Dashboard widgets is also new.

    I like it. I think it's a good evolution from Brushed Metal. But is this a hint of things to come?

    I don't like it, but I'm sure it's because I'm so used to the old look. I'll give it a few days.

    More important for me - does this new look mean that iTunes is a Cocoa application now?

    Doesn't look much different to me - just iTunes 4.5 with a skin

    Looks good, but it's wierd seeing it underneath the finder and safari, which still have the brushed look. The nice, uniform look of the windows is gone for now...

    I assume that the other osx apps will get this update soon?

    Does anyone else find the placement of the volume slider odd?

    Given iTunes cross platform nature, I doubt it will ever be cocoa, although I am unfamiliar with methods for telling what the source code of a program was.

    I'm happy there is finally a method of disabling PodCasts so I don't have to have it in my source list. I hate them.

    I am not happy with the new release. I have a 15 inch powerbook, and the iTunes window won't stretch the width of my display. I have had to pull 4.9 from my PowerMac, and use it from there. Otherwise, it looks too 'Windowsie', and I really can't stress enough that IT NEEDS TO BE IN COCOA. I am sick of the time-piece telling me I am waiting for something to load, whereas in Safari or Mail I have the BeachBall.

    Bugger about the new GUI. As much as I hate brushed metal, it was nice to finally have all of Apple's applets using BUILT-IN OSX GUIs... formerly their applications were each doing their own implementation of brushed metal, and all did it slightly different and/or buggy, now we're back to having an application drawing its own interface again...

    If only they'd ditch the brushed metal on Safari

    First people had to find ways around making Mail 2.0 look normal instead of *stupid*, and they did. Now people have to adapt to things looking four different ways in four different applications? What is this - Windows? Where's the consistency?

    I like it. Very clean.

    The minute someone (or Apple) makes a plug-in for Safari and the rest of OS X to look this way, it'll be a massive hit.
