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.

I must say, I like it. On the one hand, I prefer the Windows 7-style logo, because it's just... "more joyful" with its colours. The new logo, on the other hand, is simple, to the point, and fits better since it looks like an opened window (instead of like a waving flag).
