While it's nice that it's free and all that, why is it that so much of the open sores software available on Windows has these non-standard looking interfaces with goofy looking buttons and dials that look like they belong in the 80s?

Does Microsoft provide some free icons they can use for the toolbars or anything? Maybe some documentation on human interface guidelines?

"Open sores" hehe

I don't like the UI for Audacity and some other open source applications, either. Good program, though.
