Comment on "Mac OS X is Six Years Old Today"
by Colin Wheeler — Mar 24
My thinking behind that is the proliferation of reflections, round rects, internal glows, simple sans-serif fonts, and psdeudo-3D elements. You might be right that it's taking it a bit too far, but I think it's at least debatable.

I'd have to agree with scott here. I don't think we saw any of these sorts of elements in mass until after Mac OS X was introduced to the world, at least I didn't notice any of this until after Mac OS X came into being.

I'd take it as a compliment though that so many people want to try and emulate apples glossy/aqua style.
