Shame those icons still look like crap ;(
I think that if Microsoft didn't want to create new icons they could have updated the icons that are still the same ones used in Vista. In Windows 7 many Vista icons were updated (like the control panel, windows explorer, calculator and wordpad icons, to name a few). Those do not look that bad in Windows 8 because they don't have the shininess and 3D look that the other icons have.
