Graphics, User Interfaces Last week, Culf of Mac published an article showing off some of Snow Leopard's beautiful 512x512 icons, revealing some interesting tidbits about them you could only see when the icons are fully maximised. In this article, I compare some of Snow Leopard's icons to those of Windows 7, and you'll see while both operating systems have beautiful icons, there are some key differences between the styles of these icons. Note that this article contains some large images, so if you're on dial-up, you've been warned.

And look at the disk space report for the Tango icons in my distro:

7.2M scalable
1016K 16x16
1008K 24x24
936K 32x32

All together... maybe SVG isn't such a great idea? And maybe that's why hardly anything uses it?
