- Just because it runs natively on OS X, it's not necessarily Aqua. The ability to have pictures in the menus? That's definitely anti-aqua. What's with the odd button sizes and spacing? Not Aqua, again.
- If the user didn't specify it in the System Preferences, buttons should not have an outer glow. It's available so users can tab between controls (SysPrefs > Keyboard & Mouse > Shortcuts > Full keyboard access). If the user didn't say he wants it, it shouldn't be there.
- In OpenOffice Draw, there's some odd coloring going on behind some controls.
- If I'm in the Help search tab, with the text field selected, and I press command-A, I expect all the text in the text field to be selected, not for the Database sub-application to open!
- Leopard and pinstripes don't mix.
- Why a Windows 2000 My Documents icon in the Templates window? In OS X, either have Documents there, or the Home folder. But "My Documents" and an ancient Windows icon? Sorry, but that was just a bad move.
- Here's the worst, in my opinion: the toolbars. The white OOo toolbars completely take away the ability for the app to be called "Aqua"! Take a look at all Aqua apps in Leopard. Unified toolbars, hello? I complained about the same thing in a previous post.
That's about it for the worst parts of the interface, but on a positive note, I think it's just about ready to be widely used, except for the interface! Please, please, please fix the interface!
