I would be okay with OS 8 Platinum, Rhapsody Dark Platinum, Panther Aqua, Tiger Aqua, Unified... As long as they _finally_ get back to *one* appearance. The Batman Utility Belt™ feeling of Brushed Metal is over. It was fun in the nineties or whenever they first used it.
What I'm really afraid of is that Vista might force Apple to bring more "glow" and "effects" to the general look and feel of Mac OS X.
