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.

I'm not sure I understand this. I think you're referring to the horizontal white line between the upper and lower window panes, and to the fact that it's totally horizontal. But The perspective is straight on (i.e. the line is exactly at eye level), so isn't that how it should be? Unless you're talking about somethings else.
