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.

Not necessarily yellow

Windows 7 icon uses the traditional yellow colour, a colour which is reminiscent of actual, real-world folder


That's funny. All the folders in my office (and in my previous one) are blue like the OS X icons.

same here. Well actually I've seen folders that are green, blue, blank and maroon. Rarely see a yellow folder.
