Oh, yes. Microsoft hate. D'Oh! | :doh: That's what it is. sure. I do hate the company that's kept me in cat food for 27 years (and counting). I just keep forgetting to call it Micro$oft.

The biggest part of the problem is that the sites monitoring Microsoft (i.e. most of my news) - as well as Microsoft themselves - feel the need to create an article every time a single product changes it's icon. There were a few articles when Google did their Material Design switch, but very few.

I also don't understand why people think they should be immune to ribbing when they breathlessly write: "
Quote:
Fluent Design is a collective, open design system that ensures people, teams, and their products have the fundamental components and processes to build coherent experiences across platforms.

Sorry, grumpy today, and you poked a nerve (as I guess I did for you). Sigh | :sigh:
