I recently started using GIMP in linux more often and more thoroughly. In the past months I used to use GIMP in windows.
My question is why the buttons in the toolbox are so different between those two versions? And by different I don't mean the appearance of button but rather the icon representing the various actions.
For example I was looking for the crop button in my toolbox and I couldn't find it. (it's the last tool in the second row if your are not familiar with that).
For example the crop tool from GIMP docs is totally different (it's the selected tool this time):
So, is there any explanation for that choice? And I would like to know if I could choose somehow which toolbox to use. I personally felt that the windows toolbox (if it's not window specific the one shown in the GIMP documentation anyway) is more straight forward to infer (and to use of course).
