Mac OS - Snow Leopard vs Windows Seven Icons

The new Windows 7 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 while on Vista and Windows seven looks 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 obviously convey a message of what they signal. 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 normal 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 standard file folder. This change took place in Leopard and was had a meeting with some criticism.

Folder types are also different from Windows 7 icons to Mac OS X with the latter 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 complicated to see what the folder means like it probably did in the days before Leopard which was basically 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 extremely clear like the internal drive while 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 seven has continued the glass-like style which it debuted in Windows Vista, there also are one or two icons with a newer style that steps away from the glassy look. One of them is Wordpad which in Windows seven follows a very different style. Also 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 lots more icons that have this playful touch than in Windows that 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 inventive bent.

This, of course, is directly 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 which has been long known in the business. The utilitarian approach to icons is more clear in both systems System Preferences and Control Panel sections. The icons on both systems obviously convey their meaning without any room for bafflement. 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 within .exe and .dll files.
