          Thanks to everyone who voted and commented on this issue. Visual Studio 2013 has added color in several broad reaching icon categories. We classified the icons we focused on into three sets: icons which represent common actions, icons which indicate code hierarchy, and icons that provide some kind of notification. By utilizing a systematic and broadly applicable approach to color use we are better able to effectively convey critical meaning or affiliation through color, to attract attention through color, and to improve scan-ability through color. This approach translates into color being applied to ~80% of standard toolbar and debug toolbar icons, ~75% of code hierarchy icons, and 100% of active notifications.

          Based upon the design goals outlined above and design decisions reflected in the existing scheme for each of the core icon sets we will continue to apply and extend our approach to icon colorization as we move forward. As…

          I want those nice old icons from 2010, without the need to hack and slash into 2012 internals.

            Changed the title to clarify that this is Visual Studio startup/shutdown.

            VS 2010 is slow to load and unload, even on my Vertex 2 SSD, 16GB of memory and i7-2600. And yes, for this kind of hardware 5 seconds is considered slow.

              Metro sucks. Period. Bring back VS 2010 theme.

                2008 is like 10 times faster than 2010. I haven't had much development experience with 2012, but if it's same thing as 2010 - it needs to fixed ASAP. Make use of an SSD, 16GB of memory, i7 - whatever is installed on the development machine.

                  Updated Status: 7/2/2013

                  Thanks to everyone who voted and commented on this issue. Visual Studio 2013 has increased color and contrast use within the user interface while continuing to focus on giving the content you are creating and editing visual prominence. We’ve utilized the feedback you gave us to help refine our approach to color and contrast within three main areas: 1) we added color to icons and reduced line weights to improve icon scan-ability and to better communicate icon meaning and categorization; 2) we added line work and raised contrast levels to increase visual separation between screen regions; 3) we included a built-in “Blue” theme option at product first launch to better support user choice.

                  In keeping with these three areas we have made many changes to the Visual Studio 2013 built-in themes. In high utilization and icon intensive areas of the product, such as common toolbar actions and…

                  Bring back Visual Studio 2010 theme, at least as an option. There was nothing wrong with that - why change it?
