I like the icons very much, but I'd like to ask you not to make *everything*
orange. For example, imo, "cancel" and "accept" icons should be respectively
red and green, "warning" should be red, etc. If everything becomes orange,
it will lost a lot of visual information, and it will become graphically
I would even say that a large majority of the icons should have a proper
color adapted to their meaning; only folders and some other icons should be
Also, shouldn't we have a look at the palette for the icons? Maybe we should
try different hues for orange (more red or more yellow) and see which one
looks the most modern -- I'll try something like that today.
