Hello Niels,

I am really happy that you made the effort to write such a capable and 
well-founded critic about the Mac OS X interface proposal. I completely 
agree with all your points. About the mock-up: I don't know what types 
of buttons the other Mac OS X media applications use, but I think it 
wouldn't hurt to use the same "white" translucent buttons, while 
keeping the rectangular shape and not lowering them into window the 
surface. Having these distinctions will set them apart enough from the 
main transport buttons, while making the design appear more consistent. 
Instead of the "+" button (what does it do?), I vote for a volume 
slider directly in the main window, not hidden in some preference 
window. My last proposal would be to remove some vertical space between 
the window title and the controls.

Best regards,
