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.

I'd like to see a real double blind scientific study actually measuring productivity with different sets of icons. Science, Man, Science! No need to argue based upon one's individual whims.

care to explain how one would go about conducting such a study? kind of hard to keep teh test subjects and test administrators ignorant of what is being tested.

I like to think that he's satirizing the type of people who, if you told them that "the sky is blue," would demand an in-depth analysis of the composition of Earth's atmosphere - along with a statistical analysis of which components allow/block which parts of the visible spectrum.
