I thought it was possible to discriminate the Windows version to present a
distinct icon set per version.
Since Tango doesn't look native to Windows I think using another icon set
with a more native feel would fit better, even for previous versions of
Windows. For example, Office 13 and 16 also adopt a different design
language than Aero but they don't look out of place in Windows 7.

And barely anyone is using previous versions of Wnidows to 7 after the
end-of-life for XP.
I also think that Sifr looks better on MacOS than Breeze. A lot of work was
done in these icon sets that look native in these two OSes. It is a waste
not to put them front and center to the LibreOffice users on those OSes.

Much like Tango is perfect for Gnome and Breeze also for KDE.

Hi Pedro,

There is a bug report requesting the same thing (tdf#90194) and its
possible that Breeze fits well for windows 10 theme, but there are more
users on other versions of windows than windows 10, so i wouldnt be in
favour of it.

Looking back, i think it was a mistake to move to Breeze on MacOS,
especially just after moving to Sifr by default in the previous version
after a survey confirmed that half of Mac users were switching to it. Some
of the problems I see with Breeze on Mac is that it blends badly with the
gradient background of the toolbar, though users who get LO from the
appstore dont have this problem as the toolbar is has a white background.

Another problem is that Macs are primarily HiDPI and we dont have SVG
icons support in yet.

This may be a bit off-topic, but couldn't the Breeze theme become the
default theme in Windows 10?
It fits a lot better with the design language of W10 than Tango (as KDE
usually fits better with Windows than Gnome). And Breeze is already the
default on MacOS...
