Took me a good minute to really decide, I quite like them both. But I gotta say the second just feels more accurate. It has a keyboard, and the monitor looks more "real" rather than being some kind of shiny chew-toy. Really I just kind of wish the computer tower was a little bit more prominent in the new one like it is in the old one, but besides that, it looks better in every way.

I like the second one, and I too, would like to see the tower case a little more. This may be possible by lowering the monitor down to the keyboard and thus revealing more of the tower case.

As the guy who added the original winlogon icon, I completely second Henry's choice of changing it for an icon which better suits our icon set, while keeping the clear colours of the original icon.

Looks much cleaner, and the Golden Key attracts more the eye sight. 2nd one. No doubts. Less is more, and hiding the tower helps to focus in the important "key" detail. Imho.

Mixed feelings. I tend to want to see the tower more too. Since contrast is the issue with seeing the key in the old, a compromise would to be to show more of the tower, but make it darker (many are dark grey and/or black these days).

As for in general, I like the newer one as it is crisper and more articulated.

In my opinion, we should use Tango based icons for icons.
