Mac OS - Snow Leopard Versus Windows Seven Icons

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 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 obviously convey a message of what they indicate. Some of the significant differences between the two start if you glance 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 use a speckled blue color which more looks like a recycled paper than traditional file folder. This change happened in Leopard and was met up with some feedback.

Folder types are also different from Windows seven 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 difficult to see what the folder means like it probably did in the days before Leopard which was essentially easier 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 10 has some icons that are extremely clear like the internal drive whereas on Vista and Windows 7 looks more like an external drive. Windows doesn't dump 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 several icons with 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 advertisement which Apple did in the late 90s. There are many more icons that have this playful touch than in Windows which 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 inventive bent.

This, of course, is directly tied to the branding of each O. S : 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 utilitarian 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 confusion. These 2 sets of icons while fascinating serve that purpose. Hopefully, the way icons are rendered in Windows seven will change with the subsequent upgrade. They are now in .ico format which is not the quickest to handle inside .exe and .dll files.
