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 every bit as amateurish and hastily thrown together as the OS it represents.

LOL, and they probably paid somebody 6 figures to create this logo.

It's entirely possible the designer has a sense of humour to match a keen eye for design. If so I applaud their trolling skills
