    When would we use the WordPress 2.7 version in WordPress.com? I know that it comes at the end of this month, but what is the exactly day?

    Wow…that’s really too close to make a decision in the business world. If democracy counted.

    I’ve been in style decision meetings that close and we always ended up with the traditional tiebreaker: whichever design the boss preferred.

      You’ve been in style decision meetings with 3700 people?

      In all seriousness, I think our voting was very democratic: the popular vote had a clear winner (ask any pollster and they’ll tell you 35% to 29% is not a tie), and the judges agreed with the popular vote, so there were no complicated decisions to make.

    Glad to see that there appeared to be a major consensus on the icons and metaphors.
    I am very much looking forward to 2.7.

    My two favorites were by far VS and LS. To me they were not only visually comfortable, but they were also the most directly obvious to my eyes at a glance as to what they meant. That’s just my opinion though. Haha! Congrats to the winners! :)

    this is a good chance for us to gain more writers by letting them see the new stuffs from WP dashboard. i mean, the current dashboard has a simple effect. but with these icons… it will totally makeover everything. (i hope we still have the option to choose whether we want a iconless or w/ icons dashboard
