Hi all

I just read the UX thread/sequence of emails where it was decided that the universal Save icon (in any program, any OS) represented by a floppy disk
would be replaced by another icon.

I'm shocked that a Discuss topic where 54 messages from many people (several
of them opposing and presenting valid arguments against) was totally
dismissed because someone decided that it was time to change and the main
argument was that "it was outdated".

This is not about the floppy icon itself or a criticism to who decided to change it. It is about the process. If this is meritocracy then it sucks! A little democracy would go a long way to build a community. Communities don't
behave like this.

(Disappointed) Regards,

I totally agree with you :-))
about the outdating, should airplanes change all they reference to navy language?? why you go on board of plane? is there any board in airplane??
I suspect that a lot of that is because airplanes have largely replaced ships functionally. If you are crossing the Atlantic today, you will do in on an airplane, not an ocean liner. Although airplanes bank left, not hard to port. Also remember you board a train as well, as an airplane.
