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.

It looks like a step back to the 1980s. I can't believe for a second that's the impression they wanted it to give, but that's what it says to me.
