Apple has updated iTunes to version 10, which has numerous love-it-or-leave-it interface changes including:

  • Close/minimize/maximize buttons are now vertical.
  • Overall color theme has been shifted to gray.
  • Burn CD icon now removed from bottom right (now you must right click on a playlist to get to “Burn playlist to CD”).
  • Apple’s new social music network, Ping, is now integrated into the App Store.
  • New Dock icon, removing the CD disc

Rumor has it that Apple is testing the waters with some of these interface changes, including the vertical window buttons and gray color theme, and they are a sign of what may come with the forthcoming Mac OS X 10.7.
