I know this isnt that important but how come in 9.1 the corners on the menubar are still curved? i was at compusa last night and the comps there ran macos9 and the corner tops were squared boxes instead of curves. if anyone knows how to fix this, then please tell me.

Most likely the monitor you saw at the store was overscanning by a bit, causing the curves at the top edges of the menubar to be cut off. What you saw was the hard edges of the monitor's visible area, not an interface element.

Cheers,

9.1 (like 9) knows when it is running on a Powerbook or has an Apple LCD monitor attached and shuts off the corners. Any other monitor and it shows the corners.

I have noticed that the rounded menubar corners disappear on LCD screens...

What's the reasoning?
