I have listened to that podcast since at least this past summer, and 
enjoy it, but the fact remains is that they are still just 2 reviewers 
with negative thoughts swimming in a lot of reviews of positive. 
However, I will agree with you Valent about one thing, and that is the 
default gnome-icons in the menu. They do look retro in not the best 
ways, and I hope that F9 can change the fact. It's something we can all 
work towards changing soon. We have the time, but not necessarily the 
manpower all the time. Lots to do for each release and it seems like 
only a handful of people do often. The art team tends to be small in 
terms of active workers, from my perspective, which is a shame.
