Windows Microsoft has officially unveiled the new Windows logo, and unlike the several previous Windows logos it's no longer a flag, but actually a window. Which is weird, since Metro doesn't have windows. Love this bit: "It does not try to emulate faux-industrial design characteristics such as materiality (glass, wood, plastic, etc.)." A well-deserved jab at Apple's inexplicable obsession with skeuomorphic My First Operating System-esque interfaces.

...I really wish they had done the perspective properly on the middle line. That's driving me nuts, and I think I'm going to hate this logo forever because of it. The one-color version of the Vista/7 logo (like on new laptops' Windows keys) was so much more agreeable.
