Leopard will have MONSTER icons

OS X 10.5 Leopard will use icons as large as 512x512, twice that of what is expected in Vista (256x256).

Sample:

au contraire, this coincides with their new marketing campaign to the myopically impaired

"Because everything works better when you can see what you click."

This will also be available with a large key keyboard, with one inch raised lettering as well as braille.

Maybe a bit excessive, but as someone who does video work, some of my best work is done at excessively high resolutions and then shrunk for better visual quality. Perhaps Apple had a similar thought in mind.

I reckon MS will counter with 1024x1024 icons, its blatently an important feature.

Seriously, I think Apple should consider what they bundle with the OS, as far as features go MS is getting quite a lead out of the box.

Supporting impractical features can be a good thing sometimes...if they can make a monitor with pixels 1/10th the size of current ones, we'd be in for a visual treat. This icon business, however, probably could have been held off for three or four years.

X: was reading a magazine that compared all the features that Vista had with all those that Tiger (the current released one?) has, Vista won hands down.

Ah. Lets compare a brand new system against an older system that is already out on the market.

Seems hardly fair eh?

Would you mind scanning the article and sticking it online, I am intrigued to read it. Considering Vista has been taking a lot of criticism to the fact that Vista screen-shots look so much like Apple Mac OS X screen-shots. Since I love quotes, I feel that this one applies:

Though Tiger has been out for a year and Vista hasn't been released yet. Leopard will be out around the same time as Vista and we don't know what all the features are yet.

I could see it being good. Since that is 512 X 512 pixels used up. Monitors are being more dense with more pixels per inch, or dots per inch it would mean that icons that looked big now would look really small. For some reason the monster icons are going to be a forerunner, somehow I have a feeling Apple is going to come out with some new revolutionary screen. I will wait and see.

what's wrong with being able to size your icon as big or as small as you want?

isn't that huge icon sizable?

if so, I would put my most used lin in the middle as big as that so I can click without aiming, and a bunch of satalites progressively smaller as my reap estate gets used up

this is a good thing and I don't think it's overkill at all

If it were me, I would make it so the user could make any icon the size of their entire screen and allow them to resize accordingly
