If you open gnome menu to me icons look like from some old linux
desktop, they don't look as polished as other visual elements of
fedora desktop. I don't understand what you don't understand here.
I'm not an artists but I can give you my honest opnion that they look
misplaced and "old" compared to any other icon. If you look at firefox
or evolution icons they look much better on fedora desktop that icons
for "Accesories", "Education", "Games". Games icon looks really retro,
and it that was the intent of the artwork then I wouldn't say
anything, but I guess it is not.

How long are these icons being used? When was the last update of them?
Which year? Which fedora release?

English is not my primary language so there statements may look a bit
to direct and harsh but this is not my intention and all I would like
to start is some constructive discussion.
