    While booted to OS 9, I'm surfing through my OS X drive. In the system folder there are all kinds of pdfs for various graphics that make up the OS X GUI. hehe. I even found the startup pic thingy. If I just had pdf editing abilities I could totally tweak my GUI really easily.
    It's totally awesome how they based everything on pdf! :nod:

    That's pretty cool. Does this mean Jakeman plans to make us some different themes for OS X? :)

    Why the hell would they use PDF?

    Quartz is based on pdf. It's really a very versatile technology.

    I'm good with Photoshop, but not good enough to make GUIs better than aqua. But the potential is there to tweak your GUI. That's what I like.

    If anything, I'll be customizing my startup graphic!

    yeah, seems like they took the "appearance" thing to a whole different level.
