Description

Designer in Microsoft probably think that new Visual Studio 2012 is the nicest version of Visual Studio ever created. It's all gray, uses UPPER CASE MENUS and new icons have almost no color. How nice!
I personally think that every version of Visual Studio, starting with 2010, was uglier then the previous one. VS 2012 is really big step in that direction - to make the ugliest IDE since Turbo Pascal!
But otherwise Visual Studio is still the best development environment in the Universe and it'd be pity to stop using it or stick with older version just because Microsoft employs color-blind designers.

The goal of this project is to bring nice 2010-era icons back and make Visual Studio more eye-pleasing, user friendly and productive. Icons are customizable. Other goals are to get rid of UPPER CASE menus and change icons of files affiliated with VS in Windows explorer.

    Nice idea, but it explodes every ~hour or so with an exception that takes down the whole of VS. Don't bother with it.

    Sounds promissing, only I got an error. How can I send the XML error log file so you can see what's wrong (VS 2012 Express Edition)?
