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.

To me it looks like they took the windows 1 logo, made it even simpler ( windows are not different sizes anymore ) and rotated it.
I guess it represents the metro interface exactly, since with it you have even less options than in windows 1.
I really hope MSFT pushes windows 8 to everyone everywhere and makes it really hard for users to go back to windows 7 !
Disclaimer: I'm really not a fan of MSFT and i haven't used any of their products outside of a VM for a very long time.
