Take Away:

A trip down memory lane: the icons that shipped with various versions of Paradox.



Here are the icons that shipped with the various versions of Paradox for Windows and Paradox for DOS. I'll finish adding the various icons as I have time.

What the heck is the Paradox 11 icon supposed to represent?

I keep getting this question via email so I thought I would answer here. My believe is that it is a representation of a generic database icon. A generic database icon is frequently represented as a cylinder. The idea is that a cylinder can hold lots of data. That's my understanding so If you have an opinion, add your thoughts below.

What about Paradox 12/X2, 13/X3, and 14/X4 icons?

They don't exist. The updated Paradox 11 is the version of Paradox that shipped with X2, X3, and X4.

That's it!

I will upload more Paradox related icons as I have time. If you have any related icons, post them below in a comment.
