As you know, iTunes 11 coming in october with brand new UI. I looked on apple website and I just noticed that the window having new lighter grey colors, flatter window borders and glassier window control buttons (x - +) with almost no border. Maybe OS X 10.9 design started to appear...?
Those window control buttons starting to look like a little bit retro for me.

Well, at least we know apple developers have no taste in music.

I think it looks quite nice, a definite improvement over what we are used to. It looks great without the sidebar, IMO it was pointless and it makes more sense to have the buttons at the top. I can't wait to get my hands on it.

I really like the look aside from that terrible center display with the apple logo. It looks like someone cut a section of the app out and that's the background underneath.

iTunes updater won't work, insists that 10.6.3 is the newest build. Very strange

iTunes 11 won't be out before late October. You can manually download iTunes 10.7 from Apple Software Update or http://www.apple.com/itunes - it looks largely the same as the current version though.

I hope it's a complete rewrite and not just a GUI update.

Someone told me the OSX version was a complete re-write, but he didn't know if the Windows version was.

Looks ugly. Feels like some noob fired up Gimp and got a gradient look from the 90's.

From the keynote it looks quite nice. As someone that uses iTunes every single day I welcome these changes.

Apple retro is better than Windows Metro.
