    So for some reason the iOSX icons look great on the ipad/iphone hardware but after installing Yosemite my immediate impression is looks like it has gone towards a sleeker version of the old Windows XP style....on the bigger screens

    it looks too cartoonish !!


    No-one else think that ? :eek:

    but you're scared of some stupid icons and you can't live with them and you felt the urge to create a whole new thread, which has been done like, a million times already in the past 3 months to complain how a goddamn icon looks too cartoonish and how you'd like it to look so serious and elegant? give me a break, stare a little less at the icons and use a little more the new features you wanted so bad.

    UHU. Funny thing is there is no way not to look at icons using the OS.

    Windowz XP 2014.

    Cartoonish? Yes. Too cartoonish? No. The icons are actually really beautiful, but I think the problem is when you scale them down to a reasonable size, much of the detail is lost and they loose their realism.

    Yes some of us do...

    1. Downgrade to Mavericks or whichever OS prior to your cartoonish experience...
    2. Leave your feedback to Apple at www.apple.com/feedback
    3. Spam Tim's email at tcook@apple.com, or Jony Ive if you have his email, letting him know how disgusting his UI design is...
    4. Welcome to your worst nightmare... :D

    lol...that was exactly my first impression 4 months or so ago during the dev cycle! It is but I guess it grew on me. I guess I like the minimalism of cartoonism :)

    No reason for you to be an ass about it.

    Hey they ridicule me regardless :) and I can almost guarantee that most I've known over the last 15 odd years have made the move at some point.

    It is just a matter of time before they realise it. It will happen.

    HERE IS THE PROBLEM specially if you don't have your glasses on

    YOSIMITE IS NOT FLAT OR 2D completely it HAS DEPTH

    YOU CAN change the DOCK

    yOU CAN change the icons

    using second party applications.

    ALSO the style and icons really grow on you and you might not be able to leave it lol .. addicting.


    AND YES i do feel what you are saying and it looks like a step backwards but it is not.

    Just installed on my Macbook and first impressions are not good.

    Choice of fonts, colours and icons make it look like some flavoured linux desktop - functional but somewhat unpolished.

    I am hoping it will grow on me.

    if you read my previous reply , i wrote that its not completely 2d it is that they are almost too small to see the 3d or the DEPTH in the icons , ones you notice that you start appreciating the style more and also you can change the dock and icons using second party applications.
