What about http://www.egore911.de/vype/wine/my%20computer/0.3/my%
20computer%20016x016.png I think it's still useable even used with
perpective. And what about
http://www.egore911.de/vype/wine/desktop/0.2/desktop%20016x016.png ?
It's even less perpective.

I will check if I can work around anti-aliasing problems.
