Muh flat.

Well, at least I don't have to put up with that horrible Recycle Bin icon.
>>
>>47079243
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
>>
>>47079243
thank god, much better than the previous 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.
>>
>>47079384
The icons in 10.10 are just flat icons with neon pastel colors and slight gradients you shithead.
>>
So now we are getting le ebin isometric icons – why can't their designers think of something themselves?
I swear if this continues, Win10 will ship with Trendwhore Shape icons.

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.

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
>>
>>47079848
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.

>>47079867
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.

>>47080062
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.
>>
>>47080090
those are fucking horrible

>>47080110
not mine, but as Soon as I saw the isometric look, I thought... wait there are way better icons already made with that look.

In fact the computer icon looks way too similar.
