At least that is what I take away as the abbreviated version of the argument.
Seems I’ve read the term ’times are changing’’ or something similar while reading the email traffic about this icon issue and branding..yes they are.
Looking at the first screen in the follwoing Impress file one would think, OH Yeah change those Icons – it means quite a bit.
Then again if you looked at the other screens – the MS Windows 7 file manager has indeed changed things. Kind of hard to miss the file types – no matter what the icon, when there is an icon displayed anyways.
