In a nutshell, we've decided to change the Stable orange to blue, and keep green for Insiders. You can read all about it in the blog post: https://code.visualstudio.com/blogs/2017/10/24/theicon

In my experience, colors are culturally aligned in many things, but especially in UIs. In the some cultures, brighter colors in UIs are considered gaudy, and in the other cultures they are preferred. Reds and oranges, in particular, are discouraged in UIs in some cultures, because they invoke a warning response, while in other cultures, reds and orange are more popular. So, I don't think it's surprising to hear some people express that they preferred orange. That's part of the difficulty of building international UXs.
