Now, iTunes 5 has a new look. This theme has no named yet and people are liking it already. Perhaps Brushed Metal is being replaced? Perhaps not.
Here's a very hilarious account of how Brushed Metal feels being ousted out of a popular application. Read it. You'll be laughing your heads off.
Here's an excerpt
(Brushed Metal is the ex-superstar theme while Mike is his Hollywood-like agent):
Brushed Metal: Whatever happened to “Once you go metal, you never go back?”
Mike: Times change, my friend.
Brushed Metal: Who did they go with for iTunes? Not that Unified Title and Toolbar cocksucker…
Mike: No, they got someone new.
Brushed Metal: New?
Mike: Yeah, and he’s hot. Very hot. He looks like Unified with a tan.
