Drake, newicons installs "copynewicon" in the prefs dir. With this you can copy the info files of the newicon compatible inons that you download from aminet over the default icon .info files. I don't like copynewicon for you are required to handle this operation with a file requester so I started this
thread. Copyicon is especially good.
I like the way a plain, newly installed system works. Menus are lighning speed, icons too. Speaking of functionality, my 030/50 displays default icons faster than my PPC/Bvision machine that displays glow/new icons.
