Hmm... First eMac, now Xserve. Both promos on Apple website use Myriad for the large headers instead of the good old Apple Garamond. Is this a indicating a future change in their visual style perhaps?

I hope so. I love that new font, much cleaner and modern. The eMac also uses that font on the front of the computer.

I think the ol' Apple Garamond is more classy. I'm not a big fan of the Myriad look, but I certainly don't hate it. I don't, I swear. Eh, it's OK. Now, the only thing Apple needs to do is bring back window shades in OS X, and I will be happy. They can use all the gay Myriad they want, then.

I've got nothing against Myriad, especially Myriad Roman... but I mean... they've had this Garamond thing for AGES already. It's really weird to see Apple change that (if that's what's really happening).

I think so - I also noticed it on the packaging for the iPod, so I'd bet a fond farewell is in order for Garamond - She's served us well.
