A great find from Tim Tabor, it's Marcin Wichary's Guidebook: Graphical User Interface Gallery, featuring some great historical timelines illustrating the history of the icon.  The site is truly a treasure.  One of my favorite sections is a collection of "First Run" Screenshots - all the different GUIs as they look just after setup.

Hey! Looks like somebody on the Longhorn team ripped off the funny analog clock.

Check out Amiga OS Workbench 1.0's desktop clock...

OK, OK -- so Longhorn's is slightly less pixelated, but it still sounds like a solid lawsuit to me! ;)
