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.

The new logo reminds of small mint-flavored chocolate bricks I saw at a supermarket yesterday. I wanted to grab a few, but then my wife gave me that dreaded look, so I put them back in the shelf.

Me wants mint chocolatz..
