I like everything you've done with Photoshop CS6, although I just got it so I may have more suggestions later, but one thing right now that you HAVE to change, is that god awful icon, that's incredibly ugly, and honestly, it'd be pretty awesome if you could style the icon after the CS6 Boxart.

Hello, where have you seen the CS6 box art? It is just the demo that's been announced...

I can't find it anymore, that's weird, it looked alot like the CS5 boxart, but it had a few more edges / angled mirror things, and said 6.

i plan on replacing the CS6 icons with CS5 icons - the new ones are very ugly in my opinion

Personally I'd like CS6 apps to have icons that are icons, not just a repetition of the application name in a box.

I realise the former Macromedia applications present a problem.

Whilst I love the Photoshop Eye, the Illustrator Venus and the InDesign Butterfly, they all suffer from the same square logo problem.

I really liked the folded paper splash screen you had on the CS5 applications. Something like that would be excellent, maybe in abstract versions of the feather, shell and butterfly? I think it would represent the excellent layered nature of Adobe's applications.

Imagine something 50/50 Pixel Resort's CS4 set and Nokari's CS5 Box set.

@Chrispynutt I like the Nokari icons allot, not really a fan of Pixel resorts, but that's definitively the direction I hope Adobe will go in. those angles *nerdgasmic*
