FOSS developers: My right to create a crappy ass icon in my pixel app trumps your right to have an aesthetically consistent experience.

Regular folks: Ooh, look at macOS! 😍

FOSS developers: why no one use our operating system?


@aral Back in the day, you couldn't even ship an icon with a Linux program, or if you did it was buried in /usr/local/share/x11/resources/share/foo/icons/foo.xbm and no way to attach it.

Progress after 25 years: You can ship an icon in a bundle, but the wm still ignores it.
