Mac Rumors reports that the new Leopard Build 9A410 includes a new look.
“The most obvious visual change in the newest build is a shift away from “Brushed Metal” which Apple uses in many applications such as Safari and Finder.”

To my eyes these look suspiciously like UNO, the theme for Mac OS X by Interacto.net. Take a look and tell me what you think. UNO has a simple, beautiful and elegant look. Apple would be smart to take a page from their book. UNO would be a vast improvement over the mis-matched windows in Tiger (especially brushed metal in my opinion). UNO is FREE and easy to install and uninstall.
