Thanks for the clarification.

It just that applications don't have a MIME type. Documents do.

Technically application icons and MIME type icons are different and so
are UI icons and everything is mixed in one pot at the moment.

Perhaps we should make different pages for UI icons, application icons
and MIME icons because they are really not the same thing.

Ok.

Oh I'm not saying it's bad. It's just very limiting. In the Linux
world we get used to often very colorful and artistic icons in
contrast to the more conservative, corporate look usually found in
Windows. At least that is how I remember it. I have not use windows in
nearly 10 years.

Cheers,
Seb.
