- The icons are now monochrome, thus losing the advantage of color recognition for quickly targeting an icon (color is more important than shape, IIRC). 

- The Windows 7 icons (e.g. Windows Explorer & Internet Explorer) are color icons. Why are we being inconsistent with the OS (and for the worse)?

- The icon images seem the same size in normal and in small icon sizes. That loses a big part of the advantage of having large icons. Are we ignoring people with non-good eyesight?

Please note that Windows, and not Mac, is by FAR the largest user base. Why does it seem we are imitating the (in this case worse) Mac UI here?

If this bug is not where this change to monochrome was made, which bug is it? Where is a good place to bring up these objections?
