    POLL Who all uses the Faenza group of icons?

    Hi all

    I really like these icons a lot. Would like to know who else out there like using them as well.

    Personally I use them exclusively. Here is to hoping the new icons conical is planning will have a lot in common to Faenza.

    I like the shape of them, they are all uniform in size and they are detailed.

    Kudos to tiheum, great job!

    Re: POLL Who all uses the Faenza group of icons?

    I voted that I use multiple icon sets, and I do. But Faenza is one of the best and my favorite. The artist really did a super job and I would just love to see a themed set made for Ubuntu and made the default icons for the distro. They really have an up-to-date and crisp look to them.

    I switch my icon sets around now and then, Faenza is one of the icon sets I have in the rotation.

    Awoken, Faenza, and Malys uni are my most used icons . I'm not fond the Faenza folders , but I really like the rest of the icons .

    I personally use many different Icon sets because I get bored of them quickly, but my favorites are Faenza, Aw0ken and Cryo64-Genesis3. I think Cannonical should "buy" Faenza iconset, it's the would be the best default iconset for an OS ever.

    Yeah conical bying Faenza will definetly be great. Also investing in getting icons for the few applications not covered mainly on the KDE side will be cool too.

    I used to customise my desktop loads back in the days of Beryl and Emerald, but these days I tend to just use the defaults. Partly I think that's down to me (less of the "new toy" syndrome) and partly it's because the defaults have got a lot better. The stock Gnome 2 desktop was pretty uninspiring, even by the standards of five years ago.

    Re: POLL Who all uses the Faenza group of icons?

    Yeah, and the Ubuntu icon set is certainly a step up from default Gnome, which is still actively ugly for whatever reason. Dingy little banged-up gray folders and weirdness.

    Well, it's Canonical, and the icon set is GPL, so they'd have to do what they do with everything else they like (like Docky) and buy the dev instead.

    But yeah, they take a good idea from iOS and implement it as professionally and completely as any icon set I've seen for any system, and they're simply gorgeous. The uniformity is stylistically attractive, the icons are extremely visually distinct and readable, and the inclusion of icons from 22 to 196 pixels means they look good no matter what you're doing with them. I don't see any reason to use anything else. The folder icons took a couple of days to get used to, but they're just so damned adorable.

    Re: POLL Who all uses the Faenza group of icons?

    Faenza is nice, but all the icons are a little too square for my taste. I like each app to have its own character, at least to a certain degree.

    Re: POLL Who all uses the Faenza group of icons?

    Yeah, it's kind of like, I'm really glad that Faenza happens to suit my preferences, because it's the best icon theme I've seen in objective terms like artwork, consistency, and completeness, but none of that speaks to style and personal preference, and those are the most important criteria for any one person's choice of an icon theme.

    It's sort of like what would happen if there was one PC manufacturer who had indisputably the best-quality hardware, but all of their machines looked exactly the same and weren't any good for niche applications and - oh.
