Well your obviously 10 years old, that explains everything. As I said, take it somewhere else, im not going to have an abuse slinging match with you.

p.s Your pretty graphically illiterate. This isnt modelled off XP. its complete shit and I havent ever used it, or seen more than a glimpse of it.

Windows XP is excellent for desktop, and even a server. But i tend to use Linux and FreeBSD for servers. Linux is a server, Windows is a desktop. Please don't slag a stable and near perfect desktop OS without having used it, it is VERY unprofessional. Get some cash together, go out and buy it, try it, change your mind, have your life changed, and be smart. I sort of like your icons, there a change from the pro and serious ones, but I don't like your unprofessional attitude, you won't go far in this business if your going to be a closed-minded crap dribbler.

Both Windows XP (and 2000) and Linux are great OS's, where Linux loses in style and security, it makes up in being free. But you can't expect everything for free can you.

This is a kde theme site, please take your pro Windows shit somewhere else, will you.

Slick Icons are great and they are very different from XP icons. I don't understand why some people are saying that they are similar to them...

Blah, IKons are the best icons !!. Those ones are quite dull and not nice. They remind me bullshit Windows XP.

P.S.
What da fuck all of you mean under "Professional" ? uh ?. Stupid strict fascist style ?

Get the fuck off this board you small minded idiot.

An icon set is an icon set, use it or not, but dont winge like a little girl because you like another one better, iKons is great, this is a theme site, none of this stuff has to conform to anything, and i'll call it what I fucking like, got that?

Man why the fuck would you do anything for anyone with assholes like you around.

and btw "Stupid strict fascist style" is pretty damn stupid, remember what your talking about here.. Icons.
Sort your issues out somewhere else

Geez, just get OS X and then you won't have to download any image sets...

download icons for OSX. I love it! I was on my friend's Titanium w/ OSX and had blast. You can dink with it's config files and chnage nearly everything about the UI - like menu/window backgrounds, colors, icons (both on the desktop and on the Menu-bar), window decorations, button decorations, Dock image, etc.!

It's not a matter of "have to", it's a matter of "want to". We don't have to customize KDE - we want to. You don't have to customize OS X, but some folks may want to.

Please, don't be a jerk.

Regardless of how others feel about other icon themes, I have found this to be the "slickest" (no pun intended... who am I kiding? ofcourse it was!). I use it all the time. Keep up the good work.

I really like this icon theme. Keep up the good work!

P.S. Just one suggestion: IMHO in order to respect the "internationalization" approach of KDE, there should not have the "stop" text on the "stop" button.

While I think anything thats big and red does the job pretty well, but im working on this. Perhaps a red traffic light is perfect metaphor, and its pretty universal.

Hehe, that's what we used in one of the first beta's of KDE 2.0. The reason for having an abstract "internationalized" version of the stop-sign now instead (that's what the current stop-icon is meant to be) is that it looks easier on the eyes than a traffic-light.

the stop icon look like the traffic sign, i don't see this as an issue. If not the text says any thing to you the shape and color does.

...vary across countries. That's a stop sign in the US, but another country might have a different shape for traffic stop signs.

Still, it's hard to make a good stop icon - there's really on so much you can do. I guess just a variation on the usual X, but then again even that might not have meaning in some countries/languages. One could use an exclamation point, as it is often used in programming to denote "not", but i wonder if non-programmers would get that.

Hey!

VERY pretty icon theme! I think I'll be sticking with this one for a while. I have only one question: How is it you have the shadows under the icons as shows in your screenshot? I don't get that at all. :-(

Here's a screenshot of my desktop:

I'm running KDE2.2.2 with X4.1.0 and my video card does support RENDER (or whatever that is for AA fonts to work).

To get alpha-blended icons in KDE 2.x you have to go into

Control Center -> Look & Feel -> Icons

and choose "Blend alpha channel" in the advanced tab for Desktop/Filemanager and Panel.

Unlike KDE 3.x the alpha channel used for icons in KDE 2.x has got two limitations:

- it doesn't use the Render Extension (and therefore it's quite slow)
- the alphachannel for menu-icons and toolbar-icons doesn't get displayed.

You say menu icons & alpha-channel? Isn't it a little bit optimistic? Who can see any shadow on 16x16 icons?

Everybody. It's just that not everybody would be aware of it.

I've got my kicker up top set on tiny size, with itty bitty icons with shadows. I can tell the difference when I turn alpha-blenidng off.

Very impressive icon-theme! 8-)
Looks indeed very slick!

I'll commit this into kdeartwork today. So the latest version of this icontheme will be shipped with KDE 3.0.
