Visual Studio 11's New Look

Microsoft recently unveiled a proposal for a new look on Visual Studio 11. Now, I'm hardly a graphic designer, but one thing repeatedly strikes me as a bit bonkers in software written in the past ten years, and it's not restricted to Visual Studio: the 'save' and 'save all' icons.

Do you see that? They're floppy disks. I don't know if their continued representation is maybe indicative of an aging population of computer programmers, but floppy disks haven't been relevant since the turn of the millenium.

I wonder if new up-and-coming programmers even know what they're clicking?
