If you see a chair the first time in your life, you actually need a  
label (or somebody telling you what this thing is). Furthermore, not  
every piece of software is as commonly known as a chair. There's so  
much software today you even start to forget rarely used icons over  

BTW, did you ever try to explain some icon-only thing solely with  
words (like, over the phone)?

If you solve these things, Icons are great.
