Yes I do.
It was like "hey, I'm not a designer and know nothing about designing icons, have no design/icons software installed, but I want to have some fun and maybe help the project". Now imagine if everybody from the ROS community creates one icon - we would have a complete iconset!
And now I have the folder icon! It's an ico. I used the same software to create the image itself and GFIE Portable (thanks again justincase
!) to make it an icon. It still lacks transparency, though.

(Hm, storage service that I'm using seems to convert ico's to png. Here is a link to another service wich hosts an ico file: http://pbrd.co/1hgxCA2
Any suggestions are welcome.

I can, but I still don't understand how to make 8-bit alpha like Windows icons have. This is needed for example to make the front part of that folder semi-transparent. At the moment it always shows white where it should be transparent, which would look wierd on colored background.
