“For the past several years Apple Computer has adorned its Mac OS X applications with a mixture of its Aqua and brushed aluminum interface themes. But with the release of Mac OS X 10.4 ‘Tiger’ due in a matter of months, the Cupertino, Calif.-based company is primed to add a third interface theme to the mix,” Kasper Jade reports for AppleInsider.
“An apparent blending of two themes, the new look lifts interface elements from both of the company’s existing themes and embeds them inside a sleek platinum gradient. According to sources, the first application to adhere to the new look will be the company’s email client, Mail version 2.0,” Jade reports.
