Both the MAC operating system and Windows 7 icons are running neck to neck when it comes to beauty and form. If you compare both the Mac OS and Windows 7 icons there are some difference you can note. The styles of both icons are very nice and clearly suggest a message what they indicate. If you look at the folder icon you can find some of the key difference between in these two icons. Both these icons use folder shape but Windows 7 use normal yellow color while Mac OS employ a speckled blue color which is just look like a recycled paper. This change with Leopard has made some criticism. Folders types are also different in between Mac OS and Windows 7. The new Windows 7 icons introduced with Vista on the other hand Mac OS has some icons that are awfully clear. There are also icons which are processing new styles.
New Windows 7 icons were been introduced with the Vista and a lot of carry over to the Windows 7. Alternatively Mac OS 10 has got a few icons, which are clear like an internal drive while on the Windows and Vista 7 appears more like the external drive. The windows will not get rid of the older icons either. In case, you look in icons, then you can see the things like 3.5 or 5.25 floppy disk. Few differences with trash bin is on a Mac it is expanded when it is full.
The windows 7 has also continued glass like style that it debuted in the Windows Vista, also there are many icons possessing recent style, which steps away from glassy look. And one is Wordpad that in the Windows 7 follows different style. As well in the Mac OS X, TextEdit icon has got text that run in ’Think Different’ TV adverts that Apple did in latter 90s.
