Mainly this theme is targeting new comers to Linux or the people who like the look of Windows 10, so please if you don’t like it then don’t use it. There are Windows 10 icons available on gnome-look but we can’t share them because of proprietary license and copyright issue, since this theme is for GTK and designed by individual licensed under GPL, so there is no copyright issue. You can use Unity Tweak ToolGnome-tweak-tool or Ubuntu-Tweak to change icons/themes.

Update: We released new update in the PPA for 16.04 and 15.10, that’s the reason you are seeing this post again. You can now download Metacity in different colors for this theme.
