Don't be sorry, everyone's opinion should be heard. I have mixed
feelings, the old theme seems to kidish but the new one is too gray.
Now is a good time to look at which icons are causing the most issues
and revamp them.

Hi Larry,
it's a total surprise to me, since I thought I was following list
intensivly. I remember voting against gis theme, but majority did choose as
default. That's fine, I'm OK with the vote. But I was thinking having the
choice to switch back to classic theme !
I submitted both themes to users and all of them in my corp wanted to keep
classical one. By myself, I really have visual difficulties with gis theme
(to much blue-grey, very few pixels to distinguish functions, overly
complicated icons..)
Moreover, I must say I've not been able to fund anything for months in QGIS
project due to the lack of visibility. Please think of us and let us see
more clearly where we can help the projects.

Sorry for that message, but these last minute surprises really starts to be
a problem to me.
