Used TinkerTool and Onyx the other day as I was refurbishing old systems and I needed to find a botched “erase free space” sparse file.
I used these small tools on my new systems and os upgrades with some regularity over the years to make cosmetic changes and way back when (G3 G4 days) run maintenance scripts, up to maybe 5 years ago or so …
I still would like to find a tool that would allow me to fix the bland grey monochrome mess that Apple has turned OS X into.
It is so refreshing to install initial years of OS X and be presented with full color icons and higher contrast black text on white background.
Every time I switch back to my primary systems 10.15 it is just depressing. Different shades of grey. Tiny minimalistic grey icons with grey text. (even with high contrast accessibility option ticked)
Oh how I long for a full color OS again, with larger higher detail icons & higher contrast black text everywhere. As an option. Let people have their grey minimalistic, but provide the option to restore full color. We see in color. Color makes us happy. Let it be a bit skeuomorphic. There’s nothing inherently wrong with it.
