Microsoft For the first time in eons, Microsoft has changed its logo. "The logo has two components: the logotype and the symbol. For the logotype, we are using the Segoe font which is the same font we use in our products as well as our marketing communications. The symbol is important in a world of digital motion. The symbol's squares of color are intended to express the company's diverse portfolio of products." Nice logo, clean, concise. With Windows Phone 8, Office 2013 and Windows 8 on the way, the company could use a fresh coat of paint. Confusing that they're using what would've been a better Windows logo than the Windows 8 logo, but alas.

If I would be Microsoft, I would wait to see if my new Metr... err... Windows UI style and Windows 8 is successful before "burning my brand" using that so flat design.

By the way, I prefer the gray tones of UI and logos of Apple rather than the rainbow-esque new MS style.
