wow... microsoft is using png. how innovative. I love how ms introduces pre-existing technologies currently implemented in open-source software, and brands it as a 'feature'.

Unknown author (2006-01-31 00:00:00):

a) it's good that ms is using png because that increases the popularity of that open-source project. would you rather microsoft reinvent the technology except in a proprietary format? b) how is it not a 'feature'? it wasn't present in previous versions of windows and now it is... what would make you happy? to not mention it at all and silently change the icon format?

Unknown author (2006-02-05 00:00:00):

Agreed, guy above me. It is a feature, and the guy he responded to is an idiot :-)

Unknown author (2006-02-09 00:00:00):

Idiot guy is obviously a MS hater.

Open source code is the best...Mac rules! That is why MS is loosing more market share every day! (Oh, yeah; they are gaining market share while Mac OS and open source OSs are the domain of sewer rats everywhere!)

Unknown author (2006-02-23 00:00:00):

Pointing out that Microsoft hasn't done anything truly innovative and promoting open-source software doesn't make me an idiot guy or a sewer rat! You bunch of Microsoft loving loosers!!!

i still think that they cant hold a candle to mac

Unknown author (2006-03-02 00:00:00):

Now how do you actually compile these into a program? Visual Studio (including 2005) complains icons with an embedded PNG image aren't valid.

Vlasta (2006-03-03 00:00:00):

Here is a preliminary info about compiling Vista icons. Hope it helps.

gnome supports svg-scalable icons... of any size!!! Ouch... sorry, this was a feature two years old now... so having icons with 12 images in it is not very impressive.

PLeyava (2006-04-15 00:00:00):

Oh please, if Apple is "so good" as some people say it is, then why does LESS than 9% of the WORLDS POPULATION use it? Yeah, Microsoft Windows is used by OVER 90% of the world. Apple sucks period, go Microsoft! I cannot wait 'till Vista comes out!!!

Why, are you mad? Anyway they wouldn't touch SVG with a barge pole, they would use there own VML.

Unknown author (2006-06-25 00:00:00):

LOL, you guys are a riot. Unknown author on April 12, said Gnome. Not Apple. Gnome is Linux. Not only the free way, but the best way to go! Windows is and always will be a resource hog. I mean the article here says that if available it takes "advantage" of 256x256 icons. As cool as hi rez icons can be. I wouldn't want to HAVE to use them when available. Try opensource KDE with Kubuntu, that's the way to go!

PS KDE also linux, not Apple. LOL!

Unknown author (2006-06-27 00:00:00):

Please stop being morons, for the sake of EVERYONE invovled. Every operating system has their good aspects to it, and bad aspects to it. Stop defending everything one OS - they give you the ability to use a computer, not keep you alive.

Well my mum died because a Windows XP got a virus, and she was so, like pissed, that she died of a heart attack! So you're wrong, Linux does keep people alive, or at least decrease the risk of heart attacks.

But anyway, even so am sticking with Windows, 'cos it's the best and Bill Gates has really nice glasses and I love Windows XP, it's t3h w1n!

Unknown author (2006-06-30 00:00:00):

Oh and I have a Gnome, but it doesn't have SVG(?!) it just sits by the pond in my garden.

Linux with KDE IS a resource hog, i tried !!! Lot worse than windows...
Linux is a shit, cannot start a program without recompiling it into kernel, i tried !!!
KDE is s**t, because you still have to do everything serious in shell !!!!
Linux is s**t because there are no drivers for new equipment, so Linux is only for those poor, cheap bastards with no money, and no new equipment, get a job - You B***hes !!!!!!!
There are no games for Linux, ok there are, but they usually look like Atari 65XE...!!!!!!

Basically lINUX is F**KING CRAP !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!Because of one thing: with shitux you spend more time with problems with system then on actual work

Unknown author (2006-08-02 00:00:00):

Aren't those Vista icons ripoffs of apple-icons ?
Damn, Microsoft is getting worse by the day.
Good thing there's Linux :-D

So is windows btw :-)

Linux is a shit. Just a free shit.

Unknown author (2006-09-04 00:00:00):

Free shit? Idiots, LINUX RULES

Unknown author (2006-09-05 00:00:00):

Linux has it use. In my opinion thats only for servers. Otherwise your company would do good to spend its money on windows.

You can work faster in windows, and play better games! What else you need?

Unknown author (2006-09-11 00:00:00):

honestly, i dont really understand why any of you care that much. i would rather have a computer that can only display windows classic appearance if it can run oblivion with maxed settings

STATS DONT MEAN ANYTHING! Is Christianity better than all other religions just because more people follow it? i didnt think so. the real reason that more people use windows is that a)its cheaper b)its more common c)more games are made for it d) they're already used to using it and are to lazy to try and learn a different system

Unknown author (2006-09-20 00:00:00):

I aggree current KDE is a resource HOG. KDE4 should be better.

No games on Linux. I don't know where you have been. But must not have been where I was. Nexuiz own's on Linux. Slowly on Windows XP. Same with a few other games. Nexuiz needs all the ram it can get is hands on. Windows uses to much.

SVG icons work. Png Icons. Is it me or is MS 4 years behind linux at this point. Linux was working on getter rid of the Pixel based Icons for that long.

Problem with Linux its market share is impossiable to telly correctly.

One Survey found if you telly everything you can find Linux can be running a lot higher than expected. 6 to 1 in fact in some cases. 6 linuxs to 1 windows something.

Unknown author (2006-09-26 00:00:00):

Every OS has it advantages and disadvantages. Windows is very easy to use and to install. Adding devices like printers, scanners, graphics cards etc is also easy. Suffers from security holes. Linux is secure and good for web servers but a pain in the ass for multimedia and devices, drivers etc. Seems like they just love changing command names between versions.

Unknown author (2006-10-22 00:00:00):

linux does suck

Unknown author (2006-10-25 00:00:00):

The difference between Linux and Windows is that Linux is made for people who can use a computer while Windows is made for those that doesnt(cause 90% of the worlds population wont ever get anything about computers and you get a lot more money from them).

I have nothing against people who uxśe Windows, just dont make me use it, cause I've never seen anything so badly made.

Unknown author (2006-11-14 00:00:00):

linux really sucks. good for pros, and for that matter, only for work. Windows rules! No coment for Mac

Unknown author (2006-11-15 00:00:00):

I have installed Linux on my pc now, and think it's much better than Win. Win costs a lot of money, Linux is free. Everyone can get the sourcecode, everyone who wants is able to find out, how Linux works. That's why, there aren't big problems/errors with drivers and so on. But it is difficult to use for those, who aren't good at computers. I have been needing lots of time, to learn how to use and configure Linux. But now it seems easy to me. Wait two/three years and Linux is the number one, i'm sure!

Unknown author (2006-11-19 00:00:00):

Windows is popular because most computer users are lemmings. They use what everyone else uses and never bother to see just what OS X might have to offer. Will they prefer it? Maybe. Will they prefer Windows? Maybe. But who's gonna know if they never try something different?

Unknown author (2006-11-19 00:00:00):

"Linux" is easy if ya use the right Linux... Ubuntu. I set my father-in-law up with it and he's totally clueless about computers, but he has no complaints about Ubuntu. He's quite happy about it and I rarely ever get questions from him.

Oh come on!!! LINUX is just a piece of crap!! people who like it, just don't know the advantages, and obviously don't know how to use windows!!

Unknown author (2006-12-03 00:00:00):

People, just realise that people don't care about "the sourcecode" or about "it's free". Most people want the operating system that is the standard in offices and at home, so they can use the software and games they know. And that's the reason why Windows dominates and will keep doing so. Linux is far to complicated as soon as you want to change things, the driver situation is ridiculous. And MacOSX is far to expensive because you have to buy some overpriced Mac (PC hardware anyway) with it AND it doesn't have anywhere as much software and games as Windows does. I know, facts hurt if you're on the wrong side, but the truth is the truth.

hello, this is a great article, thanks!
i have a question: in Vista, as an end-user, can you stretch or resize icons individually? (not in an editor, but just playing around on your desktop/ folders).
thank you

Vlasta (2006-12-29 00:00:00):

not individual icons, but you can have different settings in each folder and desktop

Unknown author (2007-01-04 00:00:00):

each desktop?

Unknown author (2007-01-25 00:00:00):

Thanks for the info. Anyways i think microsoft might have copied this idea from Linux as Gnome for example had this ability before Vista (if i'm not mistaken).

Unknown author (2008-01-07 00:00:00):

that means vista is a good product, by using good ideas from other operating systems

justm1ke (2008-11-26 00:00:00):

XP chokes on 256x256 icons. If that size icon is available in the set, the set will only work with Vista.

BUT - If you create a 255x255 icon (and delete the 256x256), XP will scale it and use it.;0)

I have changed a bunch of icons to a set containing 32-bit, 128x128 and 255x255 icons. The visible difference between these icons and the standard smaller icons is VERY noticeable and, imho, worth the time and effort.

Note that XP uses the smallest available icon in *any* multi-icon file for display, thus the trimming of other sizes.

Ditto for the color depth. I haven't had a system that could only support <=256-color depth for years! Why keep all of the low-res, small icons when Windows does such an admirable job using the larger sizes?

cul,
justm1ke

Vlasta (2008-11-27 00:00:00):

Yes, XP cannot use the 256x256 format, but it should safely ignore it. There is actually only one byte for dimension specification in the .ico format, hence it appears as 0x0 pixels to XP.

The low-color formats could be useful for example in safe mode. Or if the application in question should also run on Windows 2000 or earlier.

When i saved my icon to my desktop, it was saved as a .rcu file. I can't open it. Don't have a clue! :-(

Vlasta (2014-05-16 10:11:19):

If it is .rcu, it is a cursor, not an icon. You can open it in the editor and then save it as .cur or .ani, but You'll lose the layers, so keep a backup .rcu.

Unknown author (2014-11-27 23:53:42):

But all cursors are OS cross compatible, right? I'm thinking, "Can I use Windows Vista cursors on a Windows XP computer?"
