I didn’t react immediately when Steve Jobs showed the new Finder in Panther, with brushed metal windows. Then it struck me. Oh no, not again! We will once more have to endure the whining of all those news editors and software reviewers who (a) hate metal windows, (b) can’t refrain from telling every one and (c) are too lazy to apply one of the eight different aquafier patches that will undoubtedly come out two days after the release of Panther, if not sooner. I counted at least five1 utilities that do the same thing for Safari, but it didn’t stop the whining.

Yes there seem to be lots of grumblers about Metal. Including Andy Ihnatko in this month’s Macworld. I can see their point - not following their own guidelines is a bit hypocritical…!

Still, I think Apple should add the switch themselves, to please everyone: Metal Paper (or whatever Aqua is). Or at least a choice of metal: Aluminium, Steel, Bronze, Silver, Gold, Copper… :-)

Do not meddle in the affairs of Coding Ninjas, for they are subtle and quick to anger.
