Mac OS - Snow Leopard vs 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 ten has some icons that are very clear like the internal drive whereas on Vista and Windows 7 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 check 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 major 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 nearer to their real-world opposite numbers. Mac OS elects to employ a dotted blue color which more resembles a recycled paper than traditional file folder. This change occurred in Leopard and was met 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 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 basically easier to tell one from the other.

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 awfully clear like the internal drive while on Vista and Windows seven 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 looks expanded when full.

Windows 7 has continued the glass-like style which it debuted in Windows Vista, there also are several icons possessing a more recent style that steps away from the glassy look. One of them is Wordpad which in Windows 7 follows a very different style. Also in Mac OS X, the TextEdit icon has text which ran in the'Think Different' television 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, practical icons which have carried over into Windows 7. Mac OS icons are known to have a more artistic bent.

This, naturally, is firmly tied to the branding of each O. S : 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 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 bafflement. These 2 sets of icons while engaging serve that purpose. Hopefully, the way icons are rendered in Windows seven will change with the following upgrade. They're currently in .ico format which is not the easiest to handle within .exe and .dll files.
