Menu Bars So Clean, They Seem To Disappear

I guess I've just dated myself with the title of this little blog entry (it comes from a Windex ad from when I was a kid).

Anyhow, I know I promised not to talk about this any more, but I've been running Leopard full-time for two days now and I just can't deal with the menu bar. It isn't translucent; it's transparent. I mean I can see right through it, so I can't see it! This is atrocious.


How on earth was this allowed to happen? My guess is that the people at Apple only tested with some artificial, highly uniform desktop images. Put a real picture on the desktop and the menubar becomes downright chaotic - a riot of color. It makes me feel a little seasick, actually.
