OS X has forever changed the way operating systems will be viewed. Artistically, OS X has raised the bar for OS design so high that the artistic appeal of a desktop manager is now a critical component of any commercial desktop. OS-L aims to match and exceed what can be found in OS X. In theory, there are enough icons in this set to almost recreate the entire look and feel of OS X (I couldn't make it that easy). However, many of the icons used to give OS X its' unique look and feel have been purposely replaced with alternatives from some of the best open source icon designers in the world (Reason - They're just better, but that's subjective of course). This icon set is a natural extention to Baghira (Thanks Thomas, what you've done with Mosfets code is unbelievable), but, understand that this icon set unbuilt has nearly 12 MB of icons, which means that in no way should you limit yourself to trying to recreate the look and feel of OS X. Customizing this build kit is a necessity, because you litterally have a choice between at least 3 icons for every application, device, folder, and mime type in the set. I thought of never releasing this compilation but I've downloaded the IcOsX-0.7.tar.gz numerous times and I felt that It was time that it evolved. Thanks Maitre for the original build kit script, without it I would have never constructed the Kde Icon Build Kit Template which makes releasing icon sets so simple. I hope everyone loves this build kit, because it is the ultimate compilation of the efforts of icon artist around the globe. Thanks everyone here at Kde-look, Xicons.com, Iconfactory.com, Aqua-soft.org, Aero-soft.org, Gnome-look.org, Wincustomize.org and everyone that I wish I could list individually. This is only 4/5 of the entire icon set, so look for version 1.5 comming soon.
Forgot to add the following:
To build the icon set run the included buildscript (./buildscript) Some icons may need to be renamed to have them show up natively in your distribution. All comments are welcomed, both good and bad.

Added about 2MB worth of additional icons in the apps, and devices folders. This will be the offical 1.0 release, but I still would like to add another 2MB worth of icons to the build kit.
