    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.

    Change the typeface to Helvetica and pretend it's 1962.

    The 3 year old playing with his color blocks should ask Ballmer for a design fee.

    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.

    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.

    What an enlightening comment.:D

    I like it how it's a new brand across all their products.

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

    It's not bad; it don't create any emotion but fit well into tiled metro design. It's consistent. I stay with :apple:

    It's better that the old one, I'm not inspired or anything by it though. I know you should always keep it simple, but that simple?

    It's bland and boring. As such, it says everything about the company it represents! :D

    I agree with this. It's nice and simple and reflects the move to tile interface of 8 on WM7. I like 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::

    I preferred their more wavy logo over this one.

    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.

    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.

    At least a little square should be cut off on the right side. And the leaf should be rectangle too (maybe with round corners :p)
