I agree with most of the posters, that the new icons are a little on the bland side.
With small adjustments, much could be achieved.
If you refer to fctb's post above, you can see that the icons in e.g. the edit rbbon have some color on the icons, red on Delete Item and green for setting a bookmark.
The icons for specially the SQL window could be greatly approved in the same manner: Insert record = green, Delete record = red, Refresh= blue, Clear record = red, Export Query Results = a little blue arrow
In the Tools ribbon, the icons could be improved like this: Find Database Objects and Compare Table Data = blue looking glass (like for event monitor), Export Tables, Import Tables, ODBC Importer = blue arrow symbols (like Export User Objects)
