Looks like they've completely shelved ITC Garamond Narrow in the process too.

Yep, even the boot up screen of Panther* is all Myriad (or is it Gill Sans they are branding with now?), with not a single lick of serif font in the new OS.

* if you want to play with panther betas, for the love of god back your stuff up and be prepared to format and install it clean. Installing the earlier (beta 40-something) versions over my existing 10.2.6 install was a nightmare that didn't function at all.

Yes, it is Myriad.

Frutiger? Anyone?

Nope. It is Myriad.

Am I the only one that thinks it looks tacky? The logo I mean. As far as Myriad...LOVE IT! Apple Garamond has been needing a break for a long time.

Now that I'm running services that shouldn't be interrupted, i.e. sendmail, apache, etc. I'm terrified that each upgrade will break something.

Um, the new logo will break your services?

yes, it does look tacky - even trashy.

it looks like a 3rd class logo of a startup dotcom - UGLY! just like the brushed metal thing... i would like having a clean gui like the beos used to have!!!

Yikes... is that a SWOOSH on the thing? Apple's freshening the logo up to about 1996?
