The dock icon is annoyingly ugly. It probably shouldn't bother me as much as it does and has led me to search for ways of hacking in a new icon. I've read several forum posts and blogs across the net over the past few years all commenting on it as well. Setting aside the fact that I think it's an ugly icon plain and simple I agree with the perspective many others have shared that it also conveys the wrong message. Each and every time that I see it on the dock it makes me feel like my virtual machine is in a paused state. Anyways, this is mostly just a rant to make me feel a little better but it would be great to see it get addressed.
