You don't hear that very often... :rofl:

You don't :p But that's one of the beauties of Windows 8. It's one of the features that leads to the user experience being much better than their previous operating systems, and I would love to see something similar from OS X :)

The top reminds me of Windows XP's Silver Luna theme.

Do you mean apart from the "Automatically Add to iTunes" folder?

I'm hoping for the Windows version to look somewhat more native than the current version of iTunes/Windows does.


Personally i don't really care if it looks native or not. Steam is not native. Creative Suite is not native. Lot of sortwares these days on Windows feature a not native black theme. Power DVD. Xara.

The problem is it looks Mac native on Windows. A black theme sorta like Songbird would be cool.

Or maybe you were talking about the display portion? That would make more sense I guess.

Non native looking apps on any OS are horrible and I always try my best not to use them (sometimes you just can't though :()

You already seem to be very happy with the Windows 8 experience though. So why would you not simply stay with that? I don't expect Apple to limit OS X in the ways that you're hoping for.

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


there is no such thing. Complete rewrites don't exist. even the jump from OS9 to OSX it wasn't a complete rewrite.old code was reused where appropriate. Noone rewrites from scratch, technically it's not even possibly, even if you where to start from complete scratcha nd not even reference old code, it'd be in your memory or you'd have learned about it and you'd use it.

I agree with you. Not sure the step specifically from OS 9 to OS X is a good example though, because most of OS 9's code actually did get left behind, simply because OS X architecturally continued NeXTStep's legacy much more than it did OS 9's.

nah, it's all too easy to foster a hate for things rather than learn / follow up
