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 think it's been designed so that the colour can be changed. Microsoft say it's something the user will be able to do (that's how I interpret "when you change your color, the logo changes to reflect you.")

I suspect Microsoft will use different colours in its marketing.
