Let's just face the "truth", Open Officce is just TOO ugly in linux. 
Especially those icon sets. Why doesn't OpenOffice use (at least) the 
same icons as on windows ?How can I change them ? I am also interested 
in the answer of Anthony's question.
I just can't work on OOo with those kind of icons, so I have, every time 
I need to make a report, to reboot on windows and use OOo there.

Any help is welcome.
