Mac OS - Snow Leopard vs Windows Seven Icons

The new Windows 7 icons were introduced with Vista and many carry over to Windows seven. On the other hand Mac OS 10 has some icons that are terribly clear like the internal drive whereas on Vista and Windows 7 appears more like an external drive.

When it comes to beauty and form, both the Mac OS and Windows 7 icons are running neck in neck. If you compare 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 indicate. 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 normal yellow color which is closer to their real-world counterparts. Mac OS elects to employ a speckled blue color which more resembles a recycled paper than conventional file folder. This change happened in Leopard and was had a meeting with some feedback.

Folder types are also different from Windows 7 icons to Mac OS X with the latter embossing an image on the icon and the previous choosing 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 easier to tell one from the other.

The new Windows 7 icons were introduced with Vista and many carry over to Windows 7. On the other hand Mac OS 10 has some icons that are extremely clear like the internal drive whereas on Vista and Windows seven seems more like an external drive. Windows doesn't dump its older icons either. If you look in the icons, you'll still see stuff like the 3.5 and 5.25 floppy disk. Some differences with the trash bin is that on the Mac it'is expanded when full.

Windows 7 has continued the glass-like style which it debuted in Windows Vista, there are several icons with a more recent style that steps away from the glassy look. One of them is Wordpad which in Windows seven 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 late 90s. There are also lots more icons that have this playful touch than in Windows that has been known to present business like, practical icons which have carried over into Windows 7. Mac OS icons are known to have a more artistic bent.

This, of course, is firmly tied to the branding of each operating system : Windows is business-oriented and Mac OS is more artistically driven and private. While this isn't engraved in granite, it is something which has been long known in the business. The utilitarian approach to icons is more apparent in both systems System Preferences and Control Panel sections. The icons on both systems obviously convey their meaning without any room for confusion. These two sets of icons while engaging serve that purpose. Hopefully, the way icons are rendered in Windows seven will change with the following upgrade. They are currently in .ico format which isn't the simplest to handle inside .exe and .dll files.
