The icons and other symbology on the main Visual Studio 2012 interface are too small and lacking in detail to be recognizaible. Have you lost your mind, or did you forget that this program is actually used by real humans? What happened to icons that actually resemble something in the real world? The new symbols are virtually useless, almost as bad as the "international" symbols used on some car dashboards. Cute but useless. Why should I have to struggle to use your program every hour of every day?
