If the main reason for the new icons was to cater for the icons not displaying well in all resolutions, why is my company (where not one workstation had this issue) forced to use "the new look".
Executives are furious along with most of the other users. Interestingly the most complained about aspect is the same thing that troubles me and that is the amount of space wasted between all the previously better spaced toolbars and options. Maybe get some more user feedback before a global push where we don't have a say or opt out option. I can keep rambling about we, the admins mostly look incompetent but that would just be me venting.
MS, you guys do great work in the background and with the things that really matter. What you really suck at are the trivial things.
