Gnome A common complaint about GNOME is that it has a certain fetish for icons. Menu entries, buttons - everything has an icon attached to it which often wastes space needlessly by making buttons larger than they need to be, as well as menus wider than they need to be. The good news (for me, at least) is that the next GNOME release will have all these icons removed.

Change the default and remove the option?

That just sounds to me like a really bad idea. I would welcome a change in the default but there would have to be choice some where to put it back. It just doesn't feel right to remove be removing problem (poor icon presentation) instead of fixing it (recode the theme engine to deal with icon properly).
