Monochrome disaster

No colorful icons. Not even in Solution explorer.

This is such a wrong move, it is much harder to id items in Solution Explorer (and other toolbars).

I hope they bring colors back. This is pure madness ;)

Dark theme looks good, except for the total lack of colors.

I am not sold on those icons, I also don't like "everything becoming flat", I like V2005-V2008 transition.

Please click that link and comment there. They need to hear from us. Please do it and ask your co-workers to do the same, whatever their opinion is.

I couldn't agree more. Why would monochrome be better? why?

Please use that link and go there and leave a comment, so they know... Please.


Soon we can expect colors to be removed from text editor too? You know, who needs syntax highlighting..? :-)

That (monochrome) look and feel should be an option, nothing more.
