    I'm very sorry if this is a stupid question, but I am very careful with my machine.

    I've had my Mac for years and I just recently decided to mice things up and install iOS 7 style icons form .icns files.

    I replaced apps like: Safari, Activity Monitor, Microsoft Word. ect.

    I know how to change them back later, but I was curious, will changing the default icon for Office or default apps like Safari cause any bugs or corrupt .plist later?

    Also, if I change the Calendar app and edit the package contents for a new live updating icon, could this cause corruption?

    Thanks!

    Over the years of OS X upgrades I can report that these hacks can screwup OS X upgrades. So you are warned.
