[Rd] Higher Resolution Icons for Windows / Mac

I have installed R on a Windows 7 machine and wanted to offer a set of icons that are higher resolution than the existing icon.  The icon set uses the R logo available from this link: http://developer.r-project.org/Logo/ , specifically http://developer.r-project.org/Logo/Rlogo.svg .  The first icon is the entire R Logo, while the second icon is simply the R logo without the associated oval behind it.  The icons should scale in Windows 7 to 256x256 pixels, and will scale downwards, as well.  There are no jagged edges on the icons.

I am offering these free and clear and for total use by the R project.  We have a few faculty here that want to use R, and as I have been installing the software I noticed the low resolution icon.  Creating a higher resolution icon is an easy task for me, so I created it and wanted to share it.  

I have uploaded the files here: http://www.somas.stonybrook.edu/downloads/Rprojecticons.zip 

Please let me know if there are any problems.  There are four files contained within the .zip file:  Rproject1.icns, Rproject1.ico, Rproject2.icns, Rproject2.ico.  The .icns files are Mac-formatted icon files while the .ico files are Windows-formatted icon files.  

Again, the files were created using your previously posted logos, so I give them to you under the Creative Commons Attribution ShareAlike license.

Thank you,
