Thank god, they're not keeping the current ones.
Better, but still not good
With all the money MS has cant they hire just one decent designer. Is the whole company a bunch of out of touch old men?
>tfw Macfags get consistently beautiful desktop OS design
Much better, but it looks a bit inconsistent with the sharp, visibly aliased icons next to the blurry, antialiased text.
I could accept some blurry text if the UI had abolished the pixel everywhere except as a rendering detail and would scale perfectly from 0.1x to 10x at least, but this being Windows it probably still has dialogs with hardcoded pixel layouts from Windows 3.11.
>the stainless steel Launchpad icon just turned into a flat gray circle
>Safari goes from looking like a glass compass to some plain colors
>iTunes from a cool blue bubble to a neon red stamp
And it goes on.
Better, but only because the last ones were an abomination. Those are just ugly as fuck.
Hire new artists Microsoft. The people you've got doing this shit for you are awful and are still headed full fucking blast in the wrong direction.
Windows 95/98 style recycle bin mixed with the transparency of the Windows XP style recycle bin...
>implying flat design is superior to visual depth
>They outsource their icon development to a company called "Iconfactory".
FLAT FLAT FLAT
Still ugly as fuck.
What the fuck Microsoft. Do you even gd?
>giving a fuck about icons or looks instead of performance and software compatibility
>crying about DEFAULT shit that can be changed
Really, you are fucking disgusting trash, also, here, I changed the win10 icons to win7 ones in less time you posted to cry about them
What does that actually mean? I'm just criticizing the aesthetic of OS X 10.10.
In the very least I wish the dock was still a shelf rather than a gray rectangle. It can be a flat-shaded shelf but still make it as though the icons are sitting on it, not in it.
They play a huge role in the feel and vibe that people will get when using windows.
In this day and age, if you want to advertise or market some product, aesthetics actually matter, whether you like it or not
It means you're not supposed to look solely at the icons. You have to look at the entire screen and the rest of the UI. Sometimes, you even have to take the screen, screen border, and laptop design into account as well.
call me when they are at least as good as this guys work
here's what I mean. Do you think OS X would look good on the variety of Windows laptops? Absolutely not. But Windows 8 looked pretty darn nice on the new laptops. Windows Vista and 7 also had a gradual increase towards merging the laptop aesthetics with the OS.
And now Windows 10 is changing. So is the form and function of Windows laptops. Tablets aesthetics are also changing. Even desktop screens have changed a lot in aesthetics since the time of XP.
yosemite icons are not really flat. They just got rid of gloss and other overlay effects and cleaned up a bit, icons still have gradients at the background. glyphs, shapes on icons still have a little shadows and it looks a lot better than gradientless/shadowless complete flat design shit. The reason windows icon look better now then previous totally flat ones.
pic related: If yosemite icons were flat/gradientless/shadowless etc. they would look like shit. flat design sucks as much as web 2.0 glossy icons. somewhere between is better.
Windows doesn't have any dark themes. Try changing the colors of that icon to something brighter, and then come back.
pic related. What do you guys think now?
lel. Everyone complaining about the way icons look when we all know it's ridiculously hard to customize them. Fucking kek, ya nerds. How does win 10 perform though? I think i should finally install and see. I've been to fucking lazy to screw with it.

confirmed for new Linux bullshit
it's a square/iso version of the vista recycle bin, almost exactly
but now the minimize button looks like a win3.x close button
.. and at an alternate resolution.
wow, that looks horrible.
- Huge toolbar utter waste of space.
- Close/Minimize buttons are too far away from each other, while the icons on the left have too small spacing.
- forward backward buttons are too small, while useless buttons that nobody uses (Move to, Copy to, Delete) are huge as fuck.
- buttons look assymetricall and somewhat off
- icons are still horrible, even though less horrible than the previous ones
You g-guys are not helping. How do I install my own icon set?
Am I the only one who preferred the flat ones?
I don't like these "flat-but-with-gradients" icons.
The folder icons look really weird. The Computer is too detailed, the Recycle Bin looks too 3D and similar to Win 95, etc.
