And the winner is... kon! Congratulations on winning :)

I really like your icon! However I found it kind of colorless (Metro is about using flat colors, not single color + transparency), and I decided to modify it a little bit:

Runner-ups:
2nd place: Blackholyman - your icon is very cool and uses flat colors, however the OSX-ish label at the top doesn't scale well and is out of place for a Windows program.
3rd place: Zelio - your idea is interesting, but using the old & outdated Courier New font ruins it for me; and the second version has blurry lines and Comic Sans (ugh)

Here, I took the liberty of doing it the non-raster way ;)

Nice joedf! :)
May I ask what you used to create the .ico file? Did you use my .svg or .png file as your source?

Thanks joedf :)
BTW, after posting the image above I darkened the green in my local copy of the icon to #006600. Would you mind updating your icon set? Also, please add a 64px version of the icon to logo.ico.

@kon: I very crappily cropped the image from your png and recoloured it using Paint.NET; yeah, I'm terrible at graphics :p

I used the svg file of course! :)
Im using an older freeware version (1.6.4) of IcoFX (back when it was actually freeware) ... :P
Get it here: http://filehippo.com/download_icofx/6890
It says Shareware, but I assure you that this version (1.6.4) is completely ad-free and free.

@fincs Sure! will do right away :)

Congratulations !

Thank fincs, but I don't want a place ! :D
I haven't spend hours to check every font, only some minutes to do the whole thing, sadly the only common recognized monospaced font is Courier, and even lexikos use the horrible Comic font for the current icon...

For curious people, if you really wonder how create a file icon with ahk (a long time ago, for generate at compile time), then you can read http://www.autohotkey.com/board/topic/9 ... costumized

Make a competition for the V2 icon, something like this new one !

Lies and slander! ;)

I didn't use a font. The current icon was drawn line by line with lots of touching up in Paint.NET. It is based on the older icon which I believe was made by Rajat, so follows the same shape for the H. I initially tried Comic Sans, but it didn't look right.

This new S4A icon is an improvement over the previous one, but in general I'm not a fan of the Windows 8/RT style. I use Windows 8.1 exclusively in desktop mode, and none of the programs I use follow that flat and ugly style. Not even the standard Windows programs.

Come one :D I don't care but judge by yourself, with your eyes :D (joke)

Bold it, and transform it (width)

new win 8.1 standard icon (weather, travel, chat, photo, finance ...)

However I am still on win 7, I don't need to change (at this moment), and I will not use all this new shortcut with flat icon...
