    They actually accept donations!

    If I donate there, will KDE e.V hire professional designer? I don't think so. Wasn't krita campaign http://pledgie.com/campaigns/7221 big win for everybody?

    It's not about KDE vs gnome ffs. Default icons are ugly atleast most of them. Minority like u will say they are beautiful. Why they can't polish the god damn UI so it would attract people? Take a look at this http://userbase.kde.org/images.userb.../Amarok2.6.png
    Who on earth finds it beautiful? Dull grey, keyboard accelerators(lol geeks), cluttered UI, THAT GREEN REFRESH ICON is so out of context and looks freaking UGLY. A lot of icons look cluttered too, seriously this is one ugly looking UI, everything looks out of place.

    You are the one who brought that up, not me.

    So, I suppose you have some evidence that the majority of people don't like the oxygen icons?

    Of course not. The idea of KDE e.V. is not to hire KDE developers:

    KDE e.V.'s (from now on "the e.V.") primary purpose is to support KDE. KDE is a community of developers, translators, writers and users. The e.V. supports the community through the following long-term activities:
    -The e.V. holds property for the good of the entire community. This property includes the KDE trademarks, hardware and networking equipment and cash money.
    -Makes the property available to individual contributors as needed in order to support KDE. This includes paying for travel to meetings, subsidizing events, purchasing individual hardware and offsetting other costs.
    -Organizes events including code sprints, developer meetings and the yearly KDE World Conference Akademy.
    -Approaches sponsors and supporting members for resources in order to carry out these activities.

    If you want to hire a professional designer to create an antire icon set (and other vectors such as plasma theme) then we are not talking about couple thousand dollars; probably more like tens of thousands. Creating thousands of icons is a full time job for a year.

    I totally agree with you. Imho, no big deal if Krita (probably even average Linux user don't know what it is) can make $5k or BSD over $500k every year.

    When I tried the application I got the feeling it was very touch screen oriented. Should work very good with plasma active. I don't think the UI is for regular desktop use?

    To be fair, a media centre is not for regular desktop use overall. You use media players instead.

    Oh, come on. You think that you can find an icon designer
    with more experience and quality that Nuno? That's simply
    bollocks. Icon design is fine. UI spacing and font usage is
    a bit of a problem, I'll give you that.
