The Tango Desktop Project : a great idea

At this time, I work actively on a graphical project interface for my company. I was seaching free icons on the web and I discovered the Tango Icon Gallery. The Tango Desktop Project exists to help create a consistent graphical user interface experience for free and Open Source software. There are some icons in different sizes and you can have SVG file too.

SVG format

Scalable Vector Graphics (SVG) is the description of an image as an application of the Extensible Markup Language (XML). Any program such as a Web browser that recognizes XML can display the image using the information provided in the SVG format. Different from a raster graphics image (which consists of a bit pattern description), a vector graphics image is expressed by mathematical statements.

In my opinion, these icons are useful and you can use them without problem because they are open source and they are licensed under the Creative Commons Attribution Share-Alike license. It enables :

  • to copy, distribute, display, and perform the work
  • to make derivative works
  • AND to make commercial use of the work
