well, we want to stay legal. globally, not just in europe...
ReactOS is still in alpha stage, meaning it is not feature-complete and is recommended only for evaluation and testing purposes.

There is an edit button for a reason. Also, posting twice in a row is generally frowned on.

I don't know that a reboot would be required to change the icon set. But that's the right idea for how it will work, I think. Does anyone know if ROS needs a reboot to change icons? (I'm at work - can't check right now.)

- The icons need to scale nicely at sizes 32x32 and below as well, ReactOS is meant also for old computers AND small computer screens
- ReactOS may still be running at 16-bit color depth on purpose for someone, then there is a need for non-transparent icons as well
Hi ! It's clear that the original icons will demand some work to create the adequate 32x32 & below formats. Generally they also display great on 16bpp mode (but without the additional alpha-channel etc...)

By reading most of the posts, it becomes clear that a fully ReactOS icon-set cannot appear from nowhere. For the moment we would be obliged to choose existent free (GPL) icon-sets because there are not so much people who want to start this long-standing project, and almost all the devs, are devs, thus not specialized / not having time for doing the icon-set.
Therefore the solutions are :
- choosing a free icon-set and adapt it.
- create a new icon-set ==> have a long-term contract ==> call for some people here or for a professional designer.

By the way, I would like to see far more people here answering the poll to have significant statistics, please !! :D
This would be useful because Victor and me are preparing an internal note on the change of icon-set and we want to have interesting results.

+1
After presenting ReactOS to some of my friends, they all agreed that ReactOS should not have that old Win9x/2k look (window chrome and icons).

:lol: Indeed.

The aim of the poll was to see the trend, that is, if we would change the icon set, which new one (amongst the choice) would be the best.
