do people use the dashboard???


If you've not used it previously it actually uninstalls it during Yosemite install.  It is gone here and i'm actually glad so it is not using resources for something I don't use.

Where's better window management? Yosemite: just a theme change, for the sake of it.


For your interest:

That's the idea behind the Yosemite UI - make it look consistent with iOS 7+ while still keeping its own identity.

With DP6 they've added quite a bit more polish to OS X 10.10. What we see now is likely to be very close to the final product.


I’m updating first thing when I get home this afternoon, but out of curiosity, in terms of polish have you noticed something besides the new icons?

Yosemite: just a theme change, for the sake of it.


As much as I’d love to agree with you, because I’m cool and all that, there’s an almost scary amount of new things in Yosemite. You’ll notice when third-party developers start taking advantage of it.

I think the volume and brightness HUDs look bad. Translucency, black AND white is just too much. Instead of blocks in a bar they should just go with black dots that fill in black circles. Like the iOS signal indicator.


Did they fix how bad the new font looks on non-Retina displays?

I wonder if with the UI refresh will come with a hardware design refresh. In the past OS X and the hardware (imac, macbook, mac pro) have all meshed. Back when the macs were all plastic, the UI had a more plastic feel to it.
