    Who G.A.S ... really?.......Lots more important stuff to worry about ,like or not and figure out how to fix or make it work like you want but since the OP asked I kinda like them and find them less distracting overall than the aero stuff .

    I could take em or leave em myself, I just don't think they look like very sophisticated contextuals for a multi-billion dollar software company.

    Doesn't matter to me. I never put icons on desktop. Just the recycle bin sometimes.

    Now. . .let see if I got this right. Over the past 30 years Microsoft Icons have been compared to Tonka toys, Toys R-Us, etc. If you have more that you remember please few free to add them to the list. . .. I know there are more, but those who know me know I have a problem remembering even my own Name. . .

    Mystere the part they hated wasn't the Operating System itself, it was the activation scheme there were a lot of issue with that. Some systems were shown not genuine when they actually were genuine and vice verse. Genuine advantage software caused some problems as well.

    Just think you and I think the icons suck and they would better be better with 7 style icons. The guys that do the programming and graphics design and the tosser that came up with more of this new flat look are probably earning between $120K and $500K P.A.
    as a minimum. They are going to launch Windows 10 that looks awful, has (insert deity here) awful icons and color schemes. So far no Windows 2000 type mode for lab machines. Yes there are Oscilloscopes that run Windows. Lab display for all manner of machines in laboratories world wide. I used to program TV Main board modules on a machine running NT4. No need for fancy graphics, just a clear and concise workstation. So far (at the time of writing) they Microsoft have not wooded me to upgrade to 10 when it comes out. It looks like it will need a lot of hacking to just kick it into shape and I for one can't be bothered any more. Will it be any faster than Windows 7?

    There were many things people hated, including activation. But it was also universally panned as "ugly" and the "Fisher Price OS".
