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.

Maybe it's better to look at it as a head-on window, but just a bit misshapen one, generally a bit "broken" or "wrong" (could it be that logo team wanted to sneak in some hints? ;) )

More curiously, this logo is essentially... anti-Finnish (flag); not sure what to make out of it, in light of Nokia alliance.
(alternatively, it's some perverse tribute to Shetland; or maybe Calais)
