Vista has its own icon set and objectively I have to admit that the set is beautiful. In this regard I found out that there is a Nuovext icon set available. The download link took me to the 1-Filehost website, where I was greeted with an adult website advertisement. I wanted to give the website a second chance, closed the ad and waited for the counter to become zero to obtain the download link. The link showed me a filesize of 8251528 bytes, which I would accept as being a normal for an icon set. I clicked on the download link and chose the download location and the file was immediately downloaded.
This was a surprise, because the download finished before the Firefox's Downloads window appeared! Looking at the download location I saw that what was actually downloaded was 292 bytes. “Thanks" I thought and as a prudent user, I opened a terminal window, changed to my Desktop and looked at the downloaded file with file nuoveXT-aero.tar.gz command. I was prepared for the outcome: it was a text file with the contents as follows:
<br /><b>Warning</b>: readfile(files/Mu17auig4JHE3Npe6vNhf3wl92qJdwuj.yup) [<a href='function.readfile'>function.readfile</a>]: failed to open stream: No such file or directory in <b>/srv/www/vhosts/midnightirc.info/subdomains/www.1-filehost/httpdocs/index.php</b> on line <b>166</b><br />
What those lines tell me is that actually the file is not on the host anymore. But considering the file hoster with the adult ad and/or the server is tweaked by some bad guys, this could easily be a malware. Thankfully I am not using Windows - except in a VMWare Virtual Machine - otherwise a simple double-click might have my computer taken over.
Then I told to myself: “I am using Linux and there is a very beautiful icon set for KDE, named Oxygen. Why am I not going with that?" So I downloaded and installed the set from the Synaptic Package Manager (kde-icons-oxygen and oxygen-cursor-theme.)
