Mac OS - Snow Leopard Versus Windows 7 Icons

The new Windows seven icons were introduced with Vista and many carry over to Windows 7. On the other hand Mac OS ten has some icons that are very 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 match them side-by-side, there are some differences of note, but the styles of the icons are both pretty and clearly convey a message of what they signify. Some of the significant differences between the 2 start if you glance at the folder icons. While they both use folder shapes, Windows 7 sticks with the more traditional yellow color which is closer to their real-world counterparts. Mac OS elects to employ a dotted blue color which more resembles a recycled paper than conventional file folder. This change happened in Leopard and was met with some feedback.

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 choosing an emblem sticking out of the folder. This sticking out blob of the side of the folder makes it more troublesome to see what the folder means like it probably did in the days before Leopard which was basically 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 7 seems more like an external drive. Windows doesn't get rid of 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 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 are also a couple of icons that have a newer style that steps away from the glassy look. One of them is Wordpad which in Windows seven follows a totally different style. As well , in Mac OS X, the TextEdit icon has text which ran in the'Think Different' TV advertisement which Apple did in the latter 90s. There also are plenty 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 seven. Mac OS icons are known to have a more creative bent.

This, naturally, is directly 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 obvious in both systems System Preferences and Control Panel sections. The icons on both systems obviously convey their meaning without any room for misunderstanding. These two sets of icons while fascinating serve that purpose. Hopefully, the way icons are rendered in Windows 7 will change with the subsequent upgrade. They are currently in .ico format which isn't the easiest to handle within .exe and .dll files.
