Forget 64-bit, we've got NEW ICONS!Sorry to beat that dead horse into mince, but they're doing it first.

What? Oh yes, this is an important feature apparently.

Do you think they are perhaps, just possibly, teasing us by listing the icons here? Wink | ;-)

Anyway, not to dis Visual Studio (which is a program I genuinely enjoy using!) or the work they've no doubt put into it, but the new icons really are quite similar to the old ones. Evolution rather than revolution I suppose. But the old ones were fine. The new ones are fine too. Neither better nor worse as far as I can see.

One thing that is curious is the continued use of the 3.5" floppy disk for saving. There must be VS (and other software) users today who have genuinely never seen a 3.5" floppy. Perhaps the 3.5" floppy disk icon has simply become a generic symbol for saving files, like we have generic nouns. E.g. "Escalator", "jeep", "hoover" and so on.
