I don't mind it so much, except I wish it could be made smaller...<br><br><img src=http://xtralean.net/bganey/images/os9.jpg><br><br><img src=http://xtralean.net/bganey/images/osx.jpg><br><br>

Every once in a while usually after I install something the menu bar will be momentarily transparent. I wish there were an option or a hack to make it like that all the time.<br><br>

I don't see any difference at all. The menubar appears to be exactly the same size, only the fonts are larger. And you can change that easily using Unsanity Silk.<br><br> What?<br>Visit My Web Site!

They are the same size. Two things contribute to the perception that the X bar is bigger:<br><br>1.) the 9 apple is smaller and so is the font<br><br>2.) the 9 bar has a shadow below it, making the menu bar itself seem smaller, otherwise X is the same size. <br><br>Of course, everything else in X is gigantic compared to 9...and most things can be made smaller.<br><br>

I could see how missing those 3 pixels could really cause one to lose sleep at night.<br><br>
