I can agree with mavhc on his point about icons that require user assistance in finding out what they are (ie tooltips) or in the case you made gOtai, the symbol that shows up when you move over the button.

You have to admit that if that's the standard look and feel that comes with the GUI - it's pretty confusing from the start. At least with RISC OS/Windows the icons have some (sometimes a little obsure) reference to what they do rather than being plain coloured blobs.
