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.

Windows 7 doesn't. Vista does have them. I can't imagine why or which UI fool came to the conclusion that removing existing icons that have been there for years would "clean up" things. I prefer the buttons with icons.
