linux icon theme

yep but it needs some open mindness, maybe they can open their contest to Linux or Mac OS X.

I think Linux is the OS that needs better icons set. Mac OS X don't, it's beautiful as it is.

What if we say to those artist to create their icon set for Linux. We should provide a full .zip file (yeah, do not think of gzip for them they will not use 7-zip or what so ever free software) with every default icon we have in a default installation. Everything from Xorg logo icon to Gnome gtk-stock-icons (those in the buttons), and of course everything from KDE.

After you provide those to them, they should procude something very good, and best of all it will be Gnome-KDE well integrated like Tango.

Why no-one has done this already. I really don't get it.

There are plenty of themes available for KDE, Gnome, Fluxbox, Xfce, etc, etc...
Just do a quick search on Google images for instance, and you'll probably not find the same desktop twice.
Of all the desktops I've seen over the years I find the ones running on *bsd/*nix much more interesting than Windows versions.
