    Icons

    I hate them. I don't know why, when i first started using ubuntu i thought i had to make it look as 'professional' as possible. I don't know why, but the default themes just didnt sit right with me. It might have been all the purple (at that point in time, professional to me meant LOTS of transparency and realistic looking icons) but now that i've been using it a few months, I've almost completely removed all application icons, and only use icons for folders, file-types, etc. I feel like they're unnecessary and aesthetically unappealing. Anyone else agree? What do YOU consider a 'professional' looking desktop?

    anyone go for the cli only?

    I really wasnt trying a cli vs gui, but people have their different opinions on what looks more professional. Perhaps I didnt word the question right.

    Maybe the Faenza Icons will change your mind.

    Those icons remind me of iphone it is interesting how they are all sort of square-shaped. Anyone else got any impressive or interesting icons to share?

    and ffw (fast forward).

    My favorite is probably Eikon, but I don't have a link for that.
