I don't particularly like the new icon, it looks too cartoonish (in my opinion). When I look at the new icon, it makes it seem like some sort of drawing or painting program. The old icon was more than adequate at conveying the purpose of the program. I'm not asking you to change the default, but can we have an option to use the old icon instead? Thanks for listening.
Just wanted to add my vote to providing an option to use the old icon instead.
this one looks pretty cool in my opinion… http://tempest.deviantart.com/art/Vista-Style-Icon-for-Notepad-96362514
the new icons for .txt files ruined the look of my desktop. please make it possible to change iconsets!
