Mac OS - Snow Leopard Versus Windows 7 Icons

The new Windows seven icons were introduced with Vista and many carry over to Windows 7. On the other hand Mac OS ten has some icons that are terribly 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 seven 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 clearly convey a message of what they indicate. Some of the key differences between the 2 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 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 with some criticism.

Folder types are also different from Windows seven icons to Mac OS X with the second 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 seven 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 whereas on Vista and Windows seven looks more like an external drive. Windows doesn't dump 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 also a couple of icons that have a more recent style that steps away from the glassy look. One of them is Wordpad which in Windows 7 follows a completely different style. Too in Mac OS X, the TextEdit icon has text which ran in the'Think Different' TV advertisement which Apple did in the late 90s. There also are plenty more icons that have this playful touch than in Windows which 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 inventive bent.

This, of course, is explicitly 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 that has been long known in the bizz. 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 confusion. 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're now in .ico format which is not the easiest to handle within .exe and .dll files.
