Climbing is a personal way of life, and all of us have our own preferences...Can't think that there is some kind of a majority rule when it comes to what people like.
For me it seems to comes and goes in phases too. I've done a bit of everything (ice, rock, scrambling, alpine, canyoneering, etc.), however other than hiking/scrambling I probably never excelled in any of it, and what I want to do changes from time to time.
If ice climbing is what you are in the mood now, don't be surprised if it changes later in life.
