The update manager displays some buttons with bold labels which is something I have not seen in any other Linux application.

I had this same discussion with the Firefox UX team a while ago though it was about this not being normal for all platforms. I'll change the ui-review request to see if bold button text is still wanted.

Changing summary with the following rationale. If user experience approves the ui-review the bold label should be removed at the very least on Windows since the default button is natively styled to draw attention to it on Windows. This isn't so clear on Mac OS X since our custom styling doesn't have native styling or custom styling to draw attention to it so it might be valuable to leave the text bold on Mac OS X.

Alex, this is in regards to the bold button text in the update UI that we've discussed previously. If it is decided to remove the bold text I would want it also removed at the very least on Windows for the reasons stated in comment #4.

Screenshot of Linux apps

As I originally filed this bug especially for Linux, here's a collection of screenshots showing the last pages of various wizard dialogs of Evolution (GNOME's official PIM app), Empathy (GNOME's official IM app) and OpenOffice Impress. The same results can be seen in Gimp and Ekiga for example.
Yep, the same is true for the other platforms and if we are going to change one they should be changed on all for the exact same reason you'd like it changed on Linux.

Awesome! Please remove the bold from all the themes... gnomestripe, pinstripe, and winstripe and I'll r+ it.
