Logo is hard to distinguish from VS logo as colorblind user #44931
Being colorblind, the color of latest visual studio code looks exactly the same as the color of the visual studio 2017 icon, same shape too of course. Being a user of both, it is frustrating and time consuming to open the wrong one all the time, yes I know I can change their order in the taskbar but I'm not going to memorize which one's on the left and which is on the right. Yes the old green/orange one was ugly but at least I could tell the difference, for now I'll manually change the icon but would be nice for MS to cater to the colorblind a bit.
This really pains me as a partially colorblind user. A clear distinction from vscode to visual studio has to be made, given the fact that the majority of vscode users are also visual studio users.
