Reply to stevef, I am aware of the Iyonix icon set, and they are alright, could benefit from the use of an alpha-channel, but that is of course not within Richard Hallas' control.

I know the cog is standard, and as I've said, although I'm not a fan of it, it's OK, and is not one of the key parts that need to be replaced.

I think if the cog can get universal approval, other aspects of the design can too, like you say there is politics, but we're seeing a bit more co-operation these days, so I think if an indepedant party had some design work done, and sought the approval of all concerned, we'd probably find an agreement was easier to reach than first thought.

With regard to your last point, I think whether us "whingers" can design or not is utterly irrelevant, we can all go into a restaurant and criticise the food without being able to cook, we can all dislike certain music without being able to play an instrument. I'll be the first to admit I cannot design, draw, or otherwise create visual art. I am completely inept in that field. However does that mean I have to accept bad design (I'm not saying RH's work is "bad", just making a general point) in every area of my life? Does it mean that because I am not able to make attractive art to hang on my wall, I must make do with whatever is supplied to me, and never speak a word about how I think it could be improved?
