Mac OS - Snow Leopard Versus Windows 7 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 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 signal. Some of the key 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 closer to their real-world counterparts. Mac OS elects to use a spotted blue color which more seems like a recycled paper than standard file folder. This change happened 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 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 troublesome to see what the folder means like it probably did in the days before Leopard which was essentially simpler 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 ten has some icons that are very clear like the internal drive while on Vista and Windows 7 looks more like an external drive. Windows doesn't lose its older icons either. If you look in the icons, you can 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 one or two icons with a more modern style that steps away from the glassy look. One of them is Wordpad which in Windows 7 follows a totally different style. Also 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 also many 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 7. Mac OS icons are known to have a more creative 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 private. While this isn't engraved in granite, it is something which has been long known in the industry. The practical approach to icons is more obvious in both systems System Preferences and Control Panel sections. The icons on both systems clearly convey their meaning without any room for bafflement. These 2 sets of icons while engaging 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 is not the simplest to handle within .exe and .dll files.
