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.

Compared to all the great logo designs in the World and that's what they have come up with? Lame!

This new logo is yet another statement of the companys obvious gross incompetence in the realm of graphic design.

After so many years of accumulated experience it's quite unnerving that improvements in design seem so unattainable for a company such as Microsoft. Seems like the blind are still leading the blind. Or in this case, the incompetent leading the incompetent.
