Time for a GUI / Icon refreshment

What about a refreshment for icons:
i.e. ‘ethernet network connection’ and ‘time synchronization monitor’: icons with white background on black desktop theme = :roll_eyes:

themes / windows:
What about some clean and flat (state of the art) design refreshment?
Any ideas or suggestions to do some GUI cosmetics?
Anyone here who as done some customization?

Have a look at https://github.com/QubesOS/qubes-issues/issues/5520.
There is a bunch of work being done for GUI and desktop icons for R4.1.

Qubes with i3 seems kinda popular.

Edit: I don’t imagine GUI/UX is a major concern with development team. Though there are people already discussing it elsewhere.

AWESOME :star_struck:
Needless to say, that GUI is no major concern for Qubes but do not underestimate design IMO.

I am looking forward to this refreshment.

Thanks for all the links this looks very promising to me.
Do you already have a release date for 4.1?

You’re welcome!

I’m not sure there is a release date yet, but I think you can check the progress towards it here.

Could someone point me to the demo movies which were in that GUI survey? Thanks
