Dear Software Authors

While I acknowledge that it is true that your application deals directly with disc media in some way, either reading from or writing data to compact discs or digital versatile discs, putting a graphical representation of a shiny disc in your program's icon does not help me find it when it is alongside several other shockingly similar icons with shiny discs in them. Adding such other items as muscial notes, Saturnian rings, film strips, paper documents, and laser beams is not enough. Please find more inventive icon designs. My Launcher is not being as helpful as it could be, with a row of shiny discs sitting in it where helpful icons should be. Thank you.
