Haven't seen any mention of it around here.

I actually like it. I like were Microsoft is taking their design, at the very least it's definitely something different.

Im not convinced by it. In their official blog they said that the colored squares are meant to represent the company's diverse portfolio of products (Windows - Blue, Office - Red, xBox - Green, Yellow - Bing...?) but as it stands, with their choice of colors and the way the squares are aligned, it looks way too similar to the previous Windows logo. In that sense the current logo actually goes against the idea of showcasing the various products the company offers and instead reinforces a single product: Windows.

Somewhere!
This is so common a logo it is bad. The company I worked for previously used this logo just different colour break. I know of at least a dozen companies that use this logo, just different colour variations, and have been in business a lot longer than MS. For such a large corporation to continue to copy is such a shame when the have almost unlimited resources.

Methinks it's Landor being rather overpaid for kerning Segoe UI while mind a toddler with some building blocks.

The logo looks great, it's clean & simple. It also matches the Microsoft Metro look they're trying to achieve in Windows 8 so I think it's a job well done. Now lets see who tries to mimic it.

It's just a logo. People who judge companies by their logos and not their products or services are, well... idiots. ::looks at previous posts::
Same with looks ... hair ... clothes ... cars ... etc.

People judge on outward appearance when it's the only information available.

It's what people do. If that makes them idiots, then we are all idiots.

Come to think of it ... we pretty much are.

:D

As for the logo, it fits the trend for simplicity. IMO, perhaps a bit too much so.
