Graphics, User Interfaces Last week, Culf of Mac published an article showing off some of Snow Leopard's beautiful 512x512 icons, revealing some interesting tidbits about them you could only see when the icons are fully maximised. In this article, I compare some of Snow Leopard's icons to those of Windows 7, and you'll see while both operating systems have beautiful icons, there are some key differences between the styles of these icons. Note that this article contains some large images, so if you're on dial-up, you've been warned.

A little nitpicking

About the Trash/Recycle Bin, I think I remember the old Mac icons showing the edges bulging when it was not empty, but the reinforced top and bottom remained the same diameter? This type looks like the bin just magically grew in size (for no reason?)

I've personally gotten tired of looking at icons at such minutia like this. It's all a sad race at who can out-translucent or out-photoshop-a-shine the other guy.
