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.

honestly it hurts to look at. the strange perspective of it, I mean.

and it hasn't gotten any easier to look at since the logo first leaked days ago.

for comparison: this guy on the windows blog was like "yo try this" http://www.flickr.com/photos/36724189@N05/6892887411/in/photostream or http://www.flickr.com/photos/36724189@N05/6892887709/in/photostream

not saying I'm married to his design. but it lacks some of the KNIFING ME IN THE EYE of the new microsoft windows logo design.

anyway, its done, so on with the show. insert windows 8 feature complete beta into my snozz please.

The first one looks so much better than the original.
