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 10 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 compare 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 signify. Some of the key differences between the two start if you look at the folder icons. While they both use folder shapes, Windows 7 sticks with the more traditional yellow color which is closer to their real-world counterparts. Mac OS elects to use a speckled blue color which more resembles a recycled paper than traditional file folder. This change took place 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 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 did in the days before Leopard which was actually 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 10 has some icons that are very clear like the internal drive whereas on Vista and Windows 7 looks 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 things like the 3.5 and 5.25 floppy disk. Some differences with the trash 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 are also several icons that have a newer style that steps away from the glassy look. One of them is Wordpad which in Windows 7 follows a completely different style. As well, in Mac OS X, the TextEdit icon has text which ran in the "Think Different" television advertisements which Apple did in the late 90s. There are also many more icons that have thisplayful 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 artistic 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 thisisn 't engraved in granite, it is something that has been long known in the industry. The utilitarian 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 confusion. 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 is not the easiest to handle within .exe and .dll files.
