Ugh. What have they done? I don't like this new windows 8 logo. I think it looks like something from the 80's. They said that they changed it because the older logos looked like a flag. I agree. It's actually a window. They said that the logo was changed to fit their Metro design. But simply it looks disappointing. Even if they wanted it to look "authentically digital," they could have used the Windows Phone logo, which fits perfectly.

What do you think? Do you like the new logo?

Looks very similar to the Windows 1 logo.

"Metro" should be named "Retro"

Actually the Windows 1.0 logo looks 10 times better, this is just plain sad. Another nail in Microsofts coffin.

It is a trend, to make monochrome logos - Apple first, now MS, Google is the next. Very Happy
"Monochrome" is not by all means "Bad", but this one is really ugly.

Monochrome logos are cheaper to print

my sentiments exactly


Smile I don't think Google will ever officially change there logo -- it's iconic.
and I guess they wanted to go back to basics, but I think they went a little to far
