And monochrome icons are the ideal icon types for a possible "native"
OS X interface. For that reason it would be logical to have a complete
monochrome/flat icon set at hand.


(it's not a direct answer to you Emir, but to the whole thread)

I would like to share some few reflexions about this subject :

- the "flat/monochrome icons" subject is more about *usability* than
just aesthetic ; IMHO, it's a waste of time to just want to change icons
without a UI evolution.

Here is a complement to avoid misinterpretation (my sentence was too short/compact) :

I'm not against changes. I really expect them for LO !
But we must make every UI change with usability first in mind.

If we change icon set just to be able to say "we have new icons !", we'll just disturb existing users.

There was some recent studies about icon. They can be used to provide and evolution of current icon set. And why not, to show/hide the most used one.

Let's do user-testing on prototypes to be sure that any change will improve usability.
