New icons found in Windows 10 build 9901 point to updated modern design language
The digging continues on the Windows 10 build that leaked earlier this week, and this time it seems we're getting a peek at a new style of modern UI icons coming along for the ride.
The icons, which were leaked to Neowin, display markedly thinner lines and make less use of color filling. Furthermore, the icons were found in an asset called "MDL2" which, as Neowin notes, could stand for "modern design language 2."
These icons show up in the same build 9901 that leaked earlier this week and gave us a look at some new consumer features such as a redesigned Xbox app and Cortana integration. However, if you're eager to rush out and install this leaked build, be warned, as installing it will prevent future automatic updates.

Although you can rest assured that the design will stay minimal. The days of vivid textures are long gone. :)
I just wish they introduce some substantial new elements instead of just some tiny tweaks. Google's Material Design is really beautiful and alive. Really want Microsoft to beat them again (so in the end, we win!)
Metro (and Windows+WP in general) is long due for a design change. WP has had pretty much the same design language since WP 7. (And yes, action centre and start screen background were welcome changes. But it's all starting to look a little monotonous.)
Google's Material Design looks beautiful. Need something to beat it, or at least match it.
I can't wait for Build 2015 so we can get the jucies...
