I Dont Know How To Use These, But They Look Really Great! There Could Be Some More Icons, Though. Such As:
Chrome App Launcher, UNDERTALE, And Task View.
Also, What Do You Use To Make Those Icons? I Would Like To Learn How To Make An UNDERTALE Icon.

I haven't worked on this set in a long time so nothing has been added or changed since the last update. Also I used PowerPoint to make these. If I were to make them today, I'd use Adobe Illustrator, no question.

This is quite interesting. They look like something Microsoft would have made.

For Vision I would say this would be just for utility purposes because using clashing art styles isn't pleasant and they also look quite nicely done.

For Originality I would say this is very original because most, if not all Metro UI icon sets I have seen say that this project is their inspiration.

For Technique I'd say that you took lots of time trying to make them in Illustrator or other programs of the sort and you probably had to try and look at the logos and try to make the icons as precise as you can.

For Impact I'd say there isn't much but this piece doesn't need impact to look good and it shouldn't need it either because its for utility purposes.

My final thoughts are that this is very amazing and I like it very much because of the sparse collection of icons (some of them are things I didn't even know existed) that can be used to replace those normal icons. But I have my problems, for one it doesn't have filetypes (yes I know there is a link to a filetype set but it isn't sparse and all of them or ico files) and many programs I wished were included (Sway, OpenOffice Programs, LibreOffice and it's programs, more Autodesk, Muse and Incopy.) but overall it's pretty good.

It's a really rich set of Icons and They got very high resolution ,ideal for all type of displays devices .
Very nice use of Metro style and many of colors makes it useful in many projects and changes our everyday work a little bit more interesting for our eyes .

The simple shape is main part of this deviation so we can fast find our applications and wanted things just by remembering logo and color of it.

Everything looks modern and won't be boring for us for a long time .

Don't need to worry about missing icons because I hope there aren't any like them xD
Take Care , nice Job !

WELL DONE! This is a fine piece of work! The great variety of icons has put me in awe. This must be the great result of all the blood, sweat and tears you've shed!
Overall the icons were great, but the coloring was a teeny tiny bit odd for my liking. But it's okay!
The reason I gave you 5 stars is because I think that you've made Windows 8, and Docking software users VERY happy!
It is my request, and probably a lot of other Deviants' as well, that in the future, you make the Icon Sets, categorized in terms of type. Why; 'cause I think that it would make it a lot easier for the users.
KUDOS! Keep making Icons!

Well I love this work, its simple but it looks better than anything. Its very useful in Windows 8 since microsoft decided to keep the old aero icons in the new Modern style, and after using them I have seen they look like they belong each other.
This work is huge, and its impresing as what is available, however, there are a lack of some icons that really cut the ability to theme all your computer.
However this is something worth looking and using, since its the best icon theme I have ever used (well I love Faenza, but this is a new level cool icons)

PD: Please do an icon for Feedly, Wunderlist, Sony Vegas Pro, Blender, Visual Studio Express, Windows Media Center, and XBMC, well sorry for the big list, but these were the programs I use daily and feel stange surrounded by their metro similars

Keep the good work <img src="e.deviantart.net/emoticons/s/s…" width="15" height="15" alt=":)" title=":) (Smile)"/>

This icon set is personally my favorite metro icon set out there. Everything about this is amazing.
Let's start with the vision, as in what it looks like. The icons look amazing, anywhere you put them. The color selections are very wise. Although, I kind of think that there is a bit too many light blue colored icons. The square shape of the icons make them look great when they are together. These icons are also a perfect fit with Windows 8.
Well, about originality. These icons are not exactly a new idea. They are made for the well-known Metro UI that came with Windows 8. Still, this icon sets is a very popular one, and many of these icons have never been seen before.
I don't know about what technique was used, but whatever technique was used, it seems that you knew what you were doing, as it turned out great. If I look closely at the icons, none of them look stretched. The white icons are perfectly centered on their tile.
Impact? Well, I'm pretty sure that icons aren't made to "evoke strong emotions", which is what impact is for. I'm going to talk about a different impact. These icons have become very popular. Many, many, websites use them (some without giving credit <img src="e.deviantart.net/emoticons/e/e…" width="15" height="15" alt=":o" title=":o (Eek)"/>). I also think that these icons look amazing with Rocketdock, and they're the only reason I downloaded Rocketdock.
Overall, I think you did a great, splendid, job on these icons. If there weren't categories, I would have given you a 5 star overall! Keep creating icons!

Yea, I agree with you that there are too many light blue icons, but blue is what I think of when I think Windows, generally. I made a lot of them that color so people can have the option to color them however they like as I don't know what to color each of the blue icons. :)

Very true, blue comes to my head too. I always theme Windows 8 with blue. Anyways, it's still awesome!
