Microsoft confirmed today that with Windows 8 the logo will change to this:

What are your thoughts about it?

It's not "WIndows" - at all. But It's nice. It's on the lines of the nike Swoosh or something, simple, elegant.

No, not at all. I like Segoe UI font and its WP variation. But that cross thing there reminds me more of the flag of Finland (or Denmark... Sweden or Norway). I was comfortable enough with the usual flag with removed shading, glow and crap, on a dark background, as seen in the Developer Preview. I had hoped it will stay there. :(

* the f* happens to DeviantArt links? And then people wonder why their artwork gets stolen. Can't link to it in a normal manner, that's why... /rant

I'm not keen at all. They should have gone with one similar to the Microsoft Store one

Looks sleek and trendy, very simple and eye catching, I like it. I suspect a lot of people don't like it because it's just very very different.

No that's a logo I like?

Or Scotland, is what I thought of.

I just don't like the slant of the window, it looks weird the more I look at it. Straighten out the window, maybe even take advantage of some o'that fancy rendering and make some shiny lines on it, and it would be good.

Better question is who at MS approved this? I'd like a word with him. <_<

The font looks too big. Needs to be thinner and smaller.

its a nice simple idea.

But... i dont like how its made.

I believe they can actually go with something dynamic. A dynamic logo.

In the sense... To use on start buttons on tablets. The logo will have a head on view. No scewed perspective. But if placed next to the Windows text. It should have this perspective.

And the other way for the charms menu.

In a way. Make the logo 4 dynamic live tiles. But then again .. they will be needing a static one for paper.

i edited it to the one in the middle.

Which i believe renders the tiles or window glass as square and not rectangular.

I love it! I've always disliked the idea of the four different colours in one logo, but I love this new idea of the colour changing depending on how the user has personalised their operating system?I thought that would be a good idea when I first saw the different coloured logos they used for Windows Phone; however, I love this idea more because the entire logo is filled with that one colour the user has chosen. I am looking forward to seeing how they demonstrate different colours while marketing.

In regard to the shape of the icon used?I love that, too! It screams "Metro!" It looks like four tiles on the Windows Start Screen, it looks like a window, and it effectively captures the motion and feel of the tiles.

This is a brilliant design, and it has reignited my excitement for the Windows 8 Consumer Preview.

1. Send it to MS and tell them you've fixed it. Obviously, working many hours without breaking sweat like, no doubt, the design agency that made the official one, would like to claim.

2. ???

3. Profit!

Why is that your biggest gripe? Many of the tiles on the Start Screen are rectangular, which is why I'm glad Microsoft went for this idea.

I wonder how much they paid for somone to think it up.50 cents if it was by appeal, bet it was more though.
