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.

Win 1.0 logo still the best.

Am I the only one here that thinks the Windows 1.0 logo was/is the best looking. Reminds me of a layout you would get with a tiling window manager (wasn't Win 1.0 a tiler?)
