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 strange and it is a missed opportunity:

Microsoft could probably put black and white monochorome printed lables on it's products and it will still sell hundreds of millions.
No one buy windows for styling or the nice box it comes in or the beautiful logo that appear when it boot.
This is because Windows is a tool like piece of equipment lying in hardware store. You just need it.

I personally like it.
But I get what your'e saying too.
