The standard RISCOS icons (like the ones in RISCOS 4 and Select) are really nice.

Specifically, Ilike them because of ×consistency× that is there is:

° Colour scheme

° Perspective (BeOS seemed to have this right - icons were drawn at the same kind of 'angle' - in RISCOSthey are drawn as if you are looking from 'front on view' consistently. If you look at the Windows icons, the perspective is different for different icons, which seems very untidy…

° Style: the 'control panel' icons have the same kind of style, and the document icons have the same kind of style etc…

And also they are just nice and small and cute and look professionally designed.

Anyway... what might be nice for Select 4 or something is SVGicons - big and scalable. That zoom in the iconbar when they are hovered over.

And also has anyone seen the Zsnake effect from BeOS? (Do a Google) That might be nice.

And also how about making the cursor look nicer, like having a drop shadow under it, like certain versions of Windows?

Also:I'm not sure I understand properly about this 'scrolling/zooming' concept - is it possible to make a mock-up drawing or something? But it sounds nice anyway…
