Aren’t these icon sets for Gnome rather than “Linux”? You are aware that there are other graphical user interfaces.

Yes they’re all for Gnome. 🙂 Thanks for mentioning that.

I fail to see the attraction of the flat icons. they’re ugly and harder to pick out against a busy background.
Just because simplified icons are desirable on low-power devices like phones doesn’t mean they should be crammed down the throats of all computer users.

Agree 100%. I’ve never understood the attraction either.

Please read my answer I gave to Fred.

Hey Fred, Mister Goldiloxx and article author.
I am creator of Suru++. Suru++ is NOT flat or minimalist, NOT Material Design because all they possess gradients.
I rejected the conservatism, traditionalism, flatism and minimalism because I wanted to modernise, cyberpunkise and to futuristify. Since versions 20 and 25, I made all my Suru++ icons family less conservative and traditional Bonandry’s Suru++ Ubuntu and reimaged all them with a new cyberpunk futuristic look whose new colours palette inspired by the most of sci-fi films and series and 80s and 90s cyberpunk retro-futuristic music genres:
* Altered Carbon
* Blade Runner 2065
* Krypton
* Man of Steel
* TRON Legacy
* Star Wars
* Star Trek
