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 strikes me as a darn *brick wall*... the out-of-place one that Willie Coyote would smash against in the middle of the road... :/

First of all, I'm not the ugly Bill. I mean, I *am* ugly, but not the same parent poster.

Second of all, I am never going to be able to look at that logo with out a mini Wile E. Coyote slamming into it.
