App Store Vs iTunes Buttons

When the new iTunes 10 came out, one thing that immediately caught my eye were the close, minimize, maximize buttons (the “red, yellow green” buttons if you’re confused).

Here is what we have in iTunes 10 which is different from all the previous versions of iTunes and all other Apple software.

Hmm, I’m not sure I like the vertical buttons. The horizontal had a lot going for them. Will this be a new trend or did someone simply try something new to see how it went.

My guess, the intern got crazy with the UI because the App Store is back to the horizontal buttons.

Its not a huge change by any means, just different and inconsistent which is a break from what we typically get from the folks at Apple.

So which do you prefer?
