Icons or no icons, it doesn't bother me too much. But, I am still interested in hearing other programmer's thoughts.
I configured my projects to only show relevant file extension (it means a dozen file extension), so adding icon is useless for me.
I think people that want icon are the same that people that want their text editor does everything: file management, version control, sending mail, ...
I don't need another IDE, I want an universal text (code) editor, like ST2 is actually (and I hope it stay the same).
