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.

Just take one of the better premade GTK themes like Shiki, look over the commented gtkrc and you too can have text only buttons and neat iconless menus. Xfce even has those options in the appearance tab.

Yes and if Gnome gets too oversimplified or makes Mono compulsory, We can always go over to Xfce full time. I am actually in Xfce at this moment.
