It is still in the imageres.dll of the RP. Don't know what it is good for.

I think they will change the recycle bin icon til the release. It's only a placeholder imo.

I have no clue. Maybe they use it as placeholder until the real one is finished.

I'm not really glad about all this Metro stuff. I still prefer the normal desktop view. Newer doesn't always mean better.

You did a very good job on this! I love the icons. :D anyways, what do you think of the Windows 8 Designs so far? They're really taking a risk with the start menu UI and all that metro crap, and there are a LOT of people bitching but I have a feeling it will be like last time. Everyone complains/hates --> same people complaining are the same people buying. I dislike some things but I'm seeing a lot of Pros too. I just wish I could have all of the new, with the old >_>

Thanx:) I'm not sure for the Windows8 design. Til now it is not very userfriendly. For me it is easier to work with a mouse. I use a Plasma TV as monitor so i cannot use touchscreen functions. At the moment i see no need for a new OS. Windows7 works fast and stable.I will buy Windows8 anyways, but i'm not sure how often i will use it.I had Vista Ultimate and used it maybe 100 hours that's all. I deleted it for one of the first Win7 Betas, and never used it again.Hopefully Windows8 will not end the same way as a useless disc stored on a place i can't remember.

Hahahaha, I love how you said not. You aren't just bitching about things and pretending someone is forcing an 'upgrade' on you. I somewhat agree. I like the new start-menu but it seems to lack in certain areas. I'm going to use Windows 8 for the new features but I'm going to do the registry hack to use the normal start menu.

I bet it's just as a joke for now, they probably still have to design it. I'd bet that it's in there when the consumer preview is actually released.

No i have no leaks.I think it is worth to wait two more weeks for the official release. These icons are handmade with the GIMP.They look like the recent ones, but they are no originals.
