If all icons, cursors and buttons were in a strict paletted 16-color format with Windows-style sizes (16x16/32x32 rather than 24x24/48x48 )?

This is for distros that use X in general, i'm not fond of the 32-bit PNGs and SVGs for icons. When I use my old computers with many distros I feel like a bunch of effort was wasted away in the memory and CPU trying to make these icons look good on the screen.

Think of computers in the 100MHz magnitude.
