I agree with this, as a student I learn all icons what are , and in some near future I need to learn them again, no chance.
And btw. , old one are much much better... this new one puts ridiculius eye strain !zokocx gave this 2 votes ·
I am going to mark this as completed as we recently released a Blue theme in the Visual Studio Update 2 for VS2012.
Please let us know what you think of the theme and if there’s any areas for improvement please log a suggestion bug on our Connect site: http://connect.microsoft.com/VisualStudio

Theme in VS2010 was perfect, why you throw away something that was perfect. Dont force Metro interface where is not needed, this is so repellent.
I’m going to mark this as completed so you can get your votes back – note that Matthew Johnson has released a VS 2012 color theme editor as you requested (link below) – I know it doesn’t have everything you requested in this idea, but hopefully this helps to address your feedback.

This theme is hideous, ligth/dark option is a joke one is too brigth other is too dark, icons in intelliseanse are bad.
Why you throw away something that was perfect like VS2010 theme, and introduce to us this monster, dont force Metro where is not needed !
Take a look at the VS 2012 Color Theme editor. It’s has a lot of what you are requesting here. http://visualstudiogallery.msdn.microsoft.com/366ad100-0003-4c9a-81a8-337d4e7ace05

Definitly not changing VS2010 with this ugliness, why you throw away something perfect like VS2010 theme and IDE interface. ???
I dont like this all gray color UI philosophy !
Take a look at the VS 2012 Color Theme Editor – it is an option for creating and editing your own Visual Studio themes.
