Currently icon of sharable

This icon unsure meaning from the perspective of universal design.

@Liz/Eldan - any improvement suggestions?

Comment 3 Eldan Hildesheim 2014-08-19 11:59:54 UTC
The hand icon sharing is coming from Windows world - but is quite good.
I can make it differently but it will still come from Windows world. 
From what I saw, there is no really any graphic parallel in Linux.
Normally when you want to mention that something is shared - you just write: Shareable.
The problem is when we want to mention it inside a table. It takes space to write Shareable (and this is only in English - could take more characters in other languages). So best is to have an icon.
The common share icon we found today in the web is more a publish icon (share idea/post...) and not a share of an item (share folder with someone else)
But still this is the only familiar way to recognise share.
The attachment is enclosed.

> shareable disk

I think. This icon better than shareable icon of RHEV.
Why do you bother about hand icon?

Sample - Shared folder icon on Windows 8

Shared folder icon on Windows 8, It didn't included "hand".

Comment 9 Eldan Hildesheim 2014-12-31 09:30:15 UTC
I don't think the Windows 8 version is good - too complex, u don't really get it's share, more like: a Network Folder.
Why are we trying so hard to copy from Microsoft?

Comment 12 Eldan Hildesheim 2015-01-06 14:46:39 UTC
Other options where considered with the UX team - the selected one, is the best.

Comment 13 Yuko Katabami 2015-01-07 01:23:03 UTC
Sorry, I think I misunderstood some of the comments above.
So is the icon (a disk with a 3 connected dots symbol) shown in the attachment 928333 [details] going to be used as final?

Comment 14 Eldan Hildesheim 2015-01-07 08:46:09 UTC
The hand icon.
