A Hideous Hybrid

As part of a series of Mac Pro performance tests before putting down for a new system, I watched the 1080p trailer for The Departed, looking for smoothness in playback and scaling. No problems there, but I did catch a mighty fugly interface in the trailer itself.

Screen 1: Windows Explorer tree, buttons stolen from Safari, Graphite theme scrollbar (1 MB).

Ugly Windows/Mac hybrid

Screen 2: Mini Mac window widgets, goofily labeled Aqua drop-down menus (1.32 MB).

Goofy widget layout

I guess the budget all went to the parade of stars.
