Aethera looks really good, I think I'll be
switching to it from KMail when it goes gold. One
thing that occurred to me while using it though, it
would be really nice if Aethera used KDE's standard
icon themes on the tool bars. I suggest this for
1.) Aethera would "feel" even more like a normal
2.) Aethera would benefit from the KDE artists
hard work. They have some truly great looking icons
for save, copy, cut, paste, print, new e-mail
message, etc. Aethera's current icon set is fine, but
it looks more like older Microsoft icons (MS seems to
be moving in towards more detailed icons too).
3.) If the user changed his icon theme, Aethera
would reflect this change too.
4.) The icons would be transparent in the
background. Aethera's current icons do not use
transparence, and thus look slightly funny on styles
such as "High Color Default" that use a gradient on
I don't mean this to be critical of the existing
icons, I just thought it would be _really_ a nice
thing to keep the standard KDE style in Aethera.
