Mac OS - Snow Leopard vs Windows Seven Icons

The new Windows seven icons were introduced with Vista and many carry over to Windows 7. On the other hand Mac OS 10 has some icons that are terribly clear like the internal drive while on Vista and Windows seven 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 indicate. Some of the significant differences between the two start if you look 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 opposite numbers. Mac OS elects to employ a dotted blue color which more looks like a recycled paper than conventional file folder. This change happened in Leopard and was met up with some criticism.

Folder types are also different from Windows seven icons to Mac OS X with the second 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 actually 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 awfully clear like the internal drive whereas on Vista and Windows 7 seems more like an external drive. Windows doesn't lose 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 7 has continued the glass-like style which it debuted in Windows Vista, there are also a couple of icons with a more recent style that steps away from the glassy look. One of them is Wordpad which in Windows 7 follows a completely different style. As well , in Mac OS X, the TextEdit icon has text which ran in the'Think Different' television which Apple did in the latter 90s. There also are many more icons that have this playful touch than in Windows which 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 creative 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 that has been long known in the business. The practical approach to icons is more apparent in both systems System Preferences and Control Panel sections. The icons on both systems clearly convey their meaning without any room for misunderstanding. These 2 sets of icons while interesting 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 quickest to handle inside .exe and .dll files.
