    I know how to change icons, i know that icons are created by Nuno Pinheiro, i know that KDE is not a company. Still the question is why they can't make sane nice looking default UI? And gnome's icons are a lot more elegant and beautiful. They seem to have no UI vision, all those keyboard accelerators by default, blue shadows, ugly icons, etc(yes, u can change whatever u want, but that's not the point) but still it's same geeky looking KDE. Shame.

      That is your opinion. A lot of people think that oxygen icons are better than the flat, bland Gnome ones. A Gnome port of the oxygen icon theme is one of the most popular icon sets on gnome-look, a number of companies (including Sony) have used one or more oxygen icons, and there are far more downloads for alternative Gnome icons on gnome-look than there are for alternative kde icons on kde-look, and the top android KDE-based themes are several times more popular than the top gnome themes.

        Indeed. I find the whole theme very nice, be it Oxygen icons or Oxygen itself. The only thing I don't particularly like is that it's quite grey by default, but it's very easily changed.

                It's not about KDE vs gnome ffs. Default icons are ugly atleast most of them. Minority like u will say they are beautiful. Why they can't polish the god damn UI so it would attract people? Take a look at this http://userbase.kde.org/images.userb.../Amarok2.6.png
                Who on earth finds it beautiful? Dull grey, keyboard accelerators(lol geeks), cluttered UI, THAT GREEN REFRESH ICON is so out of context and looks freaking UGLY. A lot of icons look cluttered too, seriously this is one ugly looking UI, everything looks out of place.

                  So, I suppose you have some evidence that the majority of people don't like the oxygen icons?

                      Of course not. The idea of KDE e.V. is not to hire KDE developers:

                      KDE e.V.'s (from now on "the e.V.") primary purpose is to support KDE. KDE is a community of developers, translators, writers and users. The e.V. supports the community through the following long-term activities:
                      -The e.V. holds property for the good of the entire community. This property includes the KDE trademarks, hardware and networking equipment and cash money.
                      -Makes the property available to individual contributors as needed in order to support KDE. This includes paying for travel to meetings, subsidizing events, purchasing individual hardware and offsetting other costs.
                      -Organizes events including code sprints, developer meetings and the yearly KDE World Conference Akademy.
                      -Approaches sponsors and supporting members for resources in order to carry out these activities.

                      If you want to hire a professional designer to create an antire icon set (and other vectors such as plasma theme) then we are not talking about couple thousand dollars; probably more like tens of thousands. Creating thousands of icons is a full time job for a year.

                        I totally agree with you. Imho, no big deal if Krita (probably even average Linux user don't know what it is) can make $5k or BSD over $500k every year.

                          When I tried the application I got the feeling it was very touch screen oriented. Should work very good with plasma active. I don't think the UI is for regular desktop use?

                            To be fair, a media centre is not for regular desktop use overall. You use media players instead.

                              Oh, come on. You think that you can find an icon designer
                              with more experience and quality that Nuno? That's simply
                              bollocks. Icon design is fine. UI spacing and font usage is
                              a bit of a problem, I'll give you that.
