    Well do you think it'll ever be allowed? Like Adobe creating an theming app for the iPod/iPhone, download themes etc. They'll have to do it some time, to keep up with the other markets!

    It's unlikely - changing the interface would mean changing the experience... and that's the ONE thing Apple's dead-set against. It's more likely that they'd allow OS X to be installed on non-Apple devices before they allowed skinning - some companies can do this for OS X, but they're few and far between compared to something like say... WindowBlinds for PC, which even Microsoft has semi-supported (they integrated some of the technology into Vista, IIRC).

    Remember - this is the same Apple which rejects App Store applications with 'too different from standard UI'.

    Is there something wrong with the current UI that I'm aware of?

    People would definitely buy the themes. And it would make jailbraking seem more futile.

    Money + dealing with jailbreaks = win-win, right?

    I don't know if they would be that stubborn.

    If they allowed jailbreaking I wouldn't have a reason to jailbreak anymore.
