There was a query in the last thread about the folder icons, afaik they are the new ones, this is my old catalina desktop from the previous thread and the icons are a lot more square. My VMware is borked in Big Sur or I'd throw up a VM and do a proper dive. Hope this makes sense :)

@forster I can see that I need to up my game .. the dark ones look hella nice. Thank you for sharing. I only made the default - bright mode folder.

I have much work to be done. There's no indication that LiteIcon might work on macOS 11 as far as I'm aware so I might not proceed.

Oooo I didnt know about LiteIcon, my fave icons ever are the old Bluecurve icons from Fedora/XP back in the day. Personally i think out of the two defaults Id rather the old Catalina squared off icons, but its probably just a matter of time before the new ones click. They just look like cheap knock off mac icons to me at this point! 

 

Also, thought Id give it a go but:

@forster yeah, that's unfortunate about LiteIcon - although in the past the author was kind enough to spend some time writing back if there was an indication of LiteIcon working with Catalina as an example. It's of course very early and the author might now have given that app a thought just yet. I however hope he has. At this point I'm afraid to ask.

I've also been fond of the Bluecurve icons or the Tango icons. There's many iconsets that are classic - even the folders of Amiga GlowIcons are up there - that last statement is because of my history with AmigaOS :) I can't let that OS go - not in my mind and certainly not in my heart.

Here's my desktop.. nothing major. Finished? the drive last night - I'm only doing all this as a way to have a handle of things so that I can make a dark drive as with my other Catalina harddisk icons and as an exercise. The same goes for the folder icons - I have the process still of adding the symbols on the folders - I wanted a glimpse of how Apple could have made changes to the various styles
In an essence, I have nothing better to do 😛

      Canalys: Global PC market saw 25% YoY growth in 4Q20
      by Paul Hill



      The analyst firm Canalys has reported that the global PC market saw 25% year-over-year growth in the fourth quarter of 2020. The firm classifies the PC market as desktops, notebooks (including Chromebooks) and workstations but excludes tablets which are sometimes used by some in place of a full-blown PC. Total PC shipments in 2020 grew by 11% reaching 297 million units.

      The full-year growth in the PC market is the highest that’s been seen since 2020 and the number of units shipped is the highest seen since 2014. The growth in 2020 was driven by laptops and mobile workstations; they saw a growth rate of 44% compared to 2019. Desktops, on the other hand, were less successful with shipments falling 20% compared to 2019; there were 61.9 million shipments in this segment of the market in 2020.

      In the fourth quarter, the biggest PC vendor was Lenovo which shipped 23.1 million units, in second place was HP which shipped 19.1 million units. Dell came in third place shipping more than 15 million units for the first time ever, Apple was in fourth place shipping 7.1 million units and Acer came fifth with 6.1 million units shipped. Other companies shipped a combined 18.9 million units in the fourth quarter.

      According to Canalys Research Director Rushabh Doshi, PCs have been at the centre of the digital transformation that the world has gone through in the past year due to the coronavirus pandemic. Doshi said that going forward it’s going to be “extremely difficult” to write off PCs and that it’s likely that they’re here to stay.
