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.

As I understand it, Win-8 deprecates windowing anyway, why not just flat, matte blue panel, i.e. one pane sans sub-panels? ;-)

And either way, the rough shape of window from Windows logo (~"cross" dividing it into 4 panels - hm, now I wonder if it had also some ~mythological inspiration in the Christendom) is far from universal nowadays ...didn't stop MS with the logo ;p
