Programming icons

"Packaging is the product itselft." This is the matra for most marketing folks. This is no different in designing user interfaces for customer use. Selecting a nice set of icons then becomes a serious issue if the product is for general public consumption. This complicates even more for small shops or one man team designing software solutions. Thanks to the current revolution in software development... open source, creative commons and the likes. Listed below are some icon set that are either LGPL, CCA or etc. Ximian icon sets License : LGPL The icons are being used in OpenOffice and Ximian Desktop 2 Silk Icon set License : Create Commons Attribution 2.5 License “Silk” is a smooth, free icon set, containing over 700 16-by-16 pixel icons in strokably-soft PNG format.
