I agree - the "new" Expose looks cheezy, and really stutters along, as if it was some nasty hack written for dopey Windoze, rather than the smooth and slick OSX feel that we have had for five years. I can't say that I like the brown poo-like border fill for Finder either.
Not only is the new icon ugly - it's some crappy QuickTime X garbage. I think it was like when iMovie was fairly popular, then they axed iMovie HD and all of the usefulness that iMovie had just to bring out something new but inferior. Maybe QuickTime was just too popular, you know, everyone was using it - so this is Apple's way of saying "don't bother us to add some actual modern Codecs", and forcing people to go VLC or something.
With these moves, Apple is no threat to become a monopoly...
