On Linux, I would keep the file cabinet icon, though.
(Gnome, elementary, Ubuntu's derivative Human, and Faenza, which are the
most popular icon packs, all use a non-floppy save icon.
Yes, I left out Oxygen, but on KDE, LibreOffice uses a different icon pack

Re: The Tango Save Icon (Cabinet v/ Diskette) Under Discussion Again

participate. Setting up the tests will take few minutes. And the results are
All the best,
