OS X 10.1 imcompatible with OS X Themes
Colin Cornaby notes that the upcoming OS X 10.1 is incompatible with currently circulating OS X Themes and may cause serious problems for users attempting to use themes:
"Apple has changed the architecture of the .rsrc file holding vital theme components in Mac OS 10.1. This renders current themes incompatible with Mac OS 10.1 because current themes meant for Mac OS 10.0.X use a older, incompatible architecture. Using older themes with 10.1 can result in corruption of the system, and failure to boot. This problem occurs with both XMorph and MetaMorphX. A patch will be issued around the release of 10.1 to update the Aqua theme to be compatible. People should contact the developers of themes they use for plans on making themes 10.1 compatible."
