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.

It fits in with the rest of the brand that they are trying to push.

most of the MSDN pages have the Metro look. As a Web dev I prefer these flatter straight forward interfaces and colour schemes.

The New logo is "tidy" and that is all I feel about it.
