    Did the job of designing the icons go to a disgruntled employee or Satya Nadella's niece?

    I wouldn't say they are "horrible", but I don't like at all some of them and also think they don't look professional at all. Imo the "This PC" for example is very ugly and inappropriate.
    Tastes, tastes, tastes... But I have to say I was very surprised (and disappointed) when I discover them.

    sorry to say , but to me, it looks like its children that have drawn the Icons (manner to the style) they're a bit too simple for my taste.
    but I will survive.
    / just my five cents

    I also think they are ugly, but i don't think it is because of the colors.

    I see no problem with the icons at all. They serve a function only; nothing more than simple is needed.

    I saw the icons in context and now i don't think they are that bad, they look ok.

    I found the icons mediocre in appearance. I changed them to some cool android design thingy. If you don't like them, then change them simple as that.
    Cheers,

    They look like they were drawn between episodes of and inspired by the Simpsons.
    As long as it works I won't complain, but if I can choose, I say give me 'Minority Report', not 'Margery Simpson's childhood coloring book' 😉

    I actually think the colors are what make them so bad. The bold colors look great in Metro/Modern, but it's kind of jarring in this context. If they toned that down a bit, I wouldn't mind them at all.

    Some of them are fine, but some just went too simple I think. It just feels out of place, especially where some are a straight on view and others like This PC are slightly sideways.
    In the end the icons don't matter much, just matters so you understand what they represent - which will take time.

    I'm hoping that all of these are just placeholders for the real icons that will come with the official release. For preview and functionality purposes, and to get this build out to the people quicker, maybe they just stuck these "Windows Classic" style icons there for the time being... Yeah, I'll go with that! ;)

    It's easy enough to change them. Personally I like the minimalist look although I do feel they are a bit to 'childish'..

    those icons are fugly, if anyone say it is good, they are either joking or trolling. seriously if they can't make better icons before release, it will backfire at them again.
    i definitely hope this are just placeholder for the mean time. :| but what bothers me is that MS was really stupid in the past, when it comes to UI and UX. ;(

    find a post on reddit about this too

    I like them. But yours is just an opinion. If it was a fact, it would have been proven.
