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.

Ugly.

Ugly it just is and that's undeniable. I wonder if the wrong perspective is meant to add something Escherian to the whole thing. It also looks like the flag of some Scandinavian country, which makes it quite unoriginal. A minimalistic logo for a product which is anything but uncomplicated and unencumbering.
