I'm not sure what all the fuss is about. I can't remember the last time I actually looked at the menu in Visual Studio. What with shortcut-keys and muscle memory, it's very rare that I focus my eyes on anything other than the code editor window or the solution explorer.
Yeah nobody needs tools and menus anymore. We should all memorize every shortcut key VS has to offer. Then there would be no fussing about icon color nor menu casing. I guess that would give us something like this (but without the menu of course). Content is king!
