General Development "Today at TechEd, I announced Visual Studio 2013 and Team Foundation Server 2013 and many of the Application Lifecycle Management features that they include. [...] I will not, in this post, be talking about many of the new VS 2013 features that are unrelated to the Application Lifecycle workflows. Stay tuned for more about the rest of the VS 2013 capabilities at the Build conference."

Wonder if they'll change the somewhat annoying monochromatic icons back to the older more visually distinguished style

Which specific ones bother you? I find some of them *easier* than VS2010 because they're a little more toned down. The colorful faux 3D of the old ones used to make it hard to know which icons are which.

The VS2012 RTM icons are much more colorful than the VS2012 Beta/RC releases.

From the screenshots they have gone to somewhat of an in-between between 2010 and 2012 ... which I think is good.

Built in GIT support is pretty much a must after Github's rise in popularity in the last few years.

The git support that they already have in VS 2012 update 2 also integrates with the Github for Windows client, so you can use both at the same time without them getting out of sync, and (IIRC) they even use the same git installation. It is definitely a welcome feature.

Sure. Just like they fixed the missing Start menu in Windows 8.

Actually in VS2012 they listened to feedback and put "put energy into the icons", not to my taste but they did listen.

If you look at the icons in the screenshot available you can see they aren't monochromatic.
