Single Status Update
oh my god... macOS Big Sur is SO UGLY!
i saw some screenshots of it but i intentionally waited until the public beta got released so that i could judge it, and just... holy crap.
i don't have a Mac capable of running it, so i watched Computer Clan's video on it, and macOS is basically just Windows now.
the older items that are there like the force quit menu has a different color than the title bar of the window, so it looks weird. system preferences is a mashup of square and not square icons, the window borders on some items are huge, the messages and facetime icons look really really strange...
i could go on. i actually dislike that interface so much i'm not even gonna bother with it. i was originally gonna buy a newer Mac to be able to update to it but i won't bother unless Apple fixes all the inconsistency.
this really feels like a step backwards for apple and i sincerely hope they fix the design, otherwise i'm gonna have to think for a while if i'm gonna stick with macOS for laptop use. a pretty interface is almost as important to me as general stability, and imo this interface is more ugly than Windows 10 is which says a lot.
The main thing I dislike about it at first glance is the menu bar, it makes things surprisingly hard to read depending on the wallpaper I'm using.
Some of the UI elements also look kind of out of place, and some icons actually looked cleaner on Catalina imo.
I also hope they further improve the look of it for the full launch, but that remains to be seen.
