  • It may be an unnoticeable change for many, but Apple's decision to change their OS font is causing some heated discussions amongst the more ardent fans out there. The change was announced yesterday with the introduction of OS X 10.10 Yosemite, the design of which is more in line with the current iOS 7.

    For thirteen years Apple has used Lucida Grande, but that will be pushed aside this autumn and replaced with Helvetica Neue to bring uniformity across all its devices. Users will be able to see the change when navigating through the "folders, windows and menu bars." According to Apple, the change improves the "functionality and visual" aspects on the platform. How do you feel about this?

    • You've gone too far this time, Apple.

    • It's never a good idea to leave design up the the customer. They mess everything up.
