      I do like the looks of your design, but I have no need for large
      icons. I cover my desktop with windows. The icons I use are in the
      panel/taskbar and measure about 24x24. They need to be uniquely
      identifiable and should look nice at that size.

      The tiny icon used in the Windows Quick Launch, for example, is
      crisp and easy to identify. In contrast, the icon that appears in
      the Fedora 11 panel is an unreadable blue-green blob that I've
      learned to associate with gvim only through frequent use.
