Lately (not so recently) Oracle bought Sun, and all products related to her. Among the most imporant we can cite VirtualBox, MySQL and office suite OpenOffice.org. In today's post we cover OpenOffice.org, the baton exchange has raised many hardships.
With the new version 3.2.1 OpenOffice, Oracle has implemented the new set of icons (you find below) dal look vagamente Minimalism, we can define icons “di Design“.
While the new icons almost monochromatic are elegant and minimalist, on the other hand are little usable on a practical level. And’ unquestionably easier for a user who has to choose between a six icons menù a tendina 16×16 colored ones (now associated with the application combined), rather than go and read line by line the program wanted. Obviously it is not humanly possible to see the differences between black and white icons when they occur in a drop-down menu, those dimensions logos of the programs are utopia.
And reactions the introduction of these graphical enhancements (which however create a discomfort for the usability) there were few.
