Holy crap, just found these things in my Visual Studio 8\Common7\VS2005ImageLibrary folder. In there you will find a zip file with about 800 images to use in your apps. Unfortunately these all look to be 16x15 in bitmap format and not png or gif for the web, but hey, it's a start. This is something I've been complaining
about for years. Should be great for winform toolbars, but not so useful for the web.
No new icons though. It looks like giving applications the rocket ship icon will still trendy.
Post Script: As I finished typing this up, this movie
popped up in my RSS reader as an introduction to the VS 2005 Image Library. Sweet!
