I like it. The old look was dated. But I also don't see where my User CP is at and also, no Arcade? :(

Other than that, it looks real nice.

NM, I found the CP under settings.

Don't like it. I only like change if there is distinct positivity as a result. Is there something that is distinctly "better" in this version than the old one?

It's probably better from a technological standpoint.

It's probably like Twitter then. Some people love Twitter, while I think it's an abomination of the computer world.

But it is an improvement. You can view a specific post from an ignored person without removing them from ignore!

AS I understand it, from a security standpoint it is(or will be soon) superior. ALso, at some point, the old software will no longer be supported, and some of the features this software allows that will be coming soon(integrated blogger and CMS) have the potential to be outstanding.

Anyone know why, under New Posts, some envelopes are blue and others are red?

I bleieve that means you have posted in the thread, or posted above a certain number of times, or denotes it is active. One of those maybe.

I've posted in some that are red and some that are blue. It must be how many times I've posted in that thread. So at 10 posts maybe the envelope turns red?

Its a bit disorienting and I think I am going to need to decrease magnification since all the graphics are absolutely huge. Unfortunately I cannot set my monitor to any smaller than 1440x900

It's not bad, I can see myself getting used to it. Especially since I only joined a few days ago.
