The New Look

I haven't seen the site on my iPad or my phone but on the MacBook - it is awful.
Specifics:
Don't like the teal
Don't like the font - it just hurts my eyes (maybe because it is in "Barf Teal")
The two column format leaves out important info about thread activity
The leading both between threads and within the thread is bloated
Has the line spacing changed to 1.5?

Anyone else? Is it better on mobile?

When one clears cookies on thier browser I don't see a login button on the main forum page.

Login is hidden behind "sign up now"

Now looking from the iPad, still unimpressed

I am starting to think the "Sign up ..." Should be located near the top of the page instead of the bottom!

There is no space to login unless I decided to post in any post. That's too complicated and inconvenient.

May the login should have a some words from the top (not many words) so people have cleared cookies to get to the login setup page. IMHO this should have a link right from the main forums page.

Though I personally like teal as a colour, and it even seems to fit my age-old Avatar just fine, I think it doesn't say "macosx.com" much. (Also doesn't fit my macosx.com T-shirt I'm still proudly wearing from time to time.) ;) So... I'd go to a blue colour scheme, personally.
