Re: Mac OS X and having to memorise what different coloured blobs mean

Indeed Mavhc - remembering what the three lights mean (well, two if you accept that red is danger and thus easy to remember as close) has pushed me back years in my PhD studies. It's just so much brain space!

But wait, let's look at the riscos window widgets. I spy an X there, again a kind of danger symbol, which I'd guess ot be close, but off the top of my head I have no idea what the rest of the widgets mean. Looking at the new iconsets I'd hazard a guess that the third one is iconise. Beyond that, I guess I'd have to use it to work them out.

So what magically means that pictographs in the icon bar makes them better colours?

TBH, I think the only ones that generally are easy to understand without use are prolly the Windows ones.
