Mac OS - Snow Leopard Versus 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 extremely clear like the internal drive whereas on Vista and Windows seven 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 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 2 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 counterparts. Mac OS elects to employ a dotted blue color which more seems like a recycled paper than standard file folder. This change took place 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 second embossing an image on the icon and the former opting for an emblem sticking out of the folder. This sticking out blob of the side of the folder makes it more difficult to see what the folder means like it probably did in the days before Leopard which was actually easier to tell one from the other.

The new Windows seven icons were introduced with Vista and many carry over to Windows seven. On the other hand Mac OS 10 has some icons that are very clear like the internal drive whereas on Vista and Windows seven appears 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 7 has continued the glass-like style which it debuted in Windows Vista, there also are a couple of icons that have 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. Too in Mac OS X, the TextEdit icon has text which ran in the'Think Different' TV adverts which Apple did in the latter 90s. There are plenty 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 seven. Mac OS icons are known to have a more artistic bent.

This, of course, is explicitly tied to the branding of each operating system : 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 business. The practical approach to icons is more clear in both systems System Preferences and Control Panel sections. The icons on both systems clearly convey their meaning without any room for bafflement. These two sets of icons while interesting serve that purpose. Hopefully, the way icons are rendered in Windows 7 will change with the next upgrade. They are currently in .ico format which isn't the simplest to handle inside .exe and .dll files.
