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.

The fact that anyone is concerned about having "beautiful 512x512 icons" should give us a clue as to why the world is in such bad shape today. I vote we put the designers *and* the critics on the "B" Ark.


If I could, I would mod you up to 100. As far as I'm concerned, as long as the interface isn't butt-ugly, you can give me Win 3.1 icons for all I care.

Honestly, I'd take the Win32 GUI and icons over this ugly-ass glass and translucent sh!t they have going on now days.

The purpose is for those who want refinement, or have an artistic bone in their body ...

I fail to see how caring about and using 512x512 icons is any indication of refinement.
