I DO agree that new apps are very interesting, but ...

YaST is one of the things that people really like. And it's one of the biggest
features SUSE has. If you give people ugly and dull icons for YaST ... IMHO
it's not going to be very good marketing.

Previous icons were much more colorful, nicer, ... Now it's dull and gray :(
Yes, I know, icon colors don't determine whether an app is good or not. But
if the app is eyecandy ... heck, you've won quite a bunch. Just look at MS,
it doesn't work but it's nice so people like it ;)

Just MHO

Rafa
