So I am with Robert, I prefer small icons. I using this settings in my
(1440x900) and icons are recognisable easily (I prefer Galaxy (original
set) over others). Why do we force big icons? Is it a customer request,
or UX decision? I am using 22" monitor and 1920x1080 is comfortable for
me with small icons.
