Mac OS - Snow Leopard vs Windows Seven Icons

The new Windows seven icons were introduced with Vista and many carry over to Windows seven. On the other hand Mac OS ten has some icons that are terribly clear like the internal drive while on Vista and Windows 7 seems more like an external drive.

When it comes to beauty and form, both the Mac OS and Windows seven icons are running neck in neck. If you check them side by side, there are some differences of note, but the styles of the icons are both pretty and obviously convey a message of what they signal. Some of the significant differences between the two start if you glance at the folder icons. While they both use folder shapes, Windows seven sticks with the more standard yellow color which is nearer to their real-world counterparts. Mac OS elects to employ a dotted blue color which more looks like a recycled paper than conventional file folder. This change occurred in Leopard and was met with some criticism.

Folder types are also different from Windows seven icons to Mac OS X with the latter embossing an image on the icon and the previous opting for an emblem sticking out of the folder. This sticking out blob of the side of the folder makes it more complicated to see what the folder means like it probably did in the days before Leopard which was essentially better to tell one from the other.

The new Windows 7 icons were introduced with Vista and many carry over to Windows seven. On the other hand Mac OS ten has some icons that are extremely clear like the internal drive while on Vista and Windows seven appears more like an external drive. Windows doesn't lose its older icons either. If you look in the icons, you can still see things like the 3.5 and 5.25 floppy disk. Some differences with the rubbish bin is that on the Mac it'is expanded when full.

Windows seven has continued the glass-like style which it debuted in Windows Vista, there also are a couple of icons with a newer style that steps away from the glassy look. One of them is Wordpad which in Windows 7 follows a totally different style. Also in Mac OS X, the TextEdit icon has text which ran in the'Think Different' television adverts which Apple did in the latter 90s. There are also many more icons that have this playful touch than in Windows which has been known to present business like, utilitarian icons which have carried over into Windows seven. Mac OS icons are known to have a more artistic bent.

This, naturally, is firmly tied to the branding of each O. S : Windows is business-oriented and Mac OS is more artistically driven and personal. While this isn't engraved in granite, it is something that has been long known in the industry. The practical approach to icons is more obvious in both systems System Preferences and Control Panel sections. The icons on both systems clearly convey their meaning without any room for confusion. These 2 sets of icons while fascinating serve that purpose. Hopefully, the way icons are rendered in Windows 7 will change with the next upgrade. They're now in .ico format which isn't the quickest to handle inside .exe and .dll files.
