We need bigger default icons, because small icons look really awful (at least
on Mac systems). And there is not much difference on pixels they use.

It is not about smaller content size, it is about showing more content. In
Writer it is essential to show big content to have more control on it, but in
Calc we need more content displayed on screen. When I look at Calc, I remember
my first computer with 1024x768 resolution and me trying to learn Excel 95 on

BTW, Office uses 2.29cm column width by default, Calc uses 2.26cm but looks
bigger. Instead of setting zoom ratio, default view ratio could also be altered
alternatively. Office uses 100% by default.
