The old one was perfect. The good thing is, that if you have it pinned on the macOS Dock and you update it, the icon does not change immediately to the ugly new one.

The old logo was better, no idea why anyone wanted to change it. Seems like change just for the sake of change.

Could always fork the project to get rid of it though? I kinda doubt Microsoft will listen to anyone here...

I want back blue logo, or green is also good, but this "poop color logo" is horrible and so ugly.

And on desktop it isn't updated. (only if uninstall and install it's updated, but if I update old version, it's not)

Definitely not the best change of this version.
And the colours? Orange for a stable and green for the insider?
Is it just me or it's more natural to associate green with safer and yellow/orange/red with risks?

I want back the blue one.
btw, the color green means something bad in chinese, and I think it's not a good choice.

Please, Mr. Microsoft, please return our logo. The orange does not have enough contrast and is confused with the color of my windows. And the lateral line shrinks the logo, discard it. And why in mac do not have the same logo? just add gradients.

Thanks everyone for all the feedback, and again we apologize for not responding sooner.

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

Blue is Back!

Thanks to everyone for giving the feedback and responding to it.
I think we all learned a valuable design lesson here, which is: if you can replace Trump's hair with your logo and no one notices, it's time to rethink it.

Rather indecisive, some people liked the orange and got used to it but on the other hand M$ actually did change it.. hmm...

bithooked commented Nov 29, 2017

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.

Not that I liked the orange logo, but it did work better in Windows' "open with" dialog:
