New icon too similar to sublime #33329
With regards to the shape, we tested these icons quite extensively (with well over 100 people) and there was no indication that the shape of our new icon would be confused with the shape of the Sublime icon. Nobody suggested that they would confuse Sublime and VS Code, even those participants who use Sublime.
I know that orange was chosen because of VS Team Services as pointed out here. However, the blue color was distinctive of VSCode since launch.
