My icon is similar but more Metro

Great effort, but the new logo represents Tiles, and tiles are not multi-coloured. They are monochromatic.

That idea looks horrible compared with the new logo, as it doesn't fit with the Metro design language. The logo Microsoft have announced is beautiful and it fits very well with the Metro design language; it captures the motion and feel of Metro. A coloured-in logo that even follows the Metro design language wouldn't look very nice, in my opinion; marketing and placing the logo on different marketing materials wouldn't be as easy as being able to display the logo in different colours and shades is.

You're completely wrong. I don't jump on bandwagons. I've always wondered exactly why they chose a flag. I thought that was for a reason, though, and that maybe I didn't understand why; this blog post of Microsoft's suggests otherwise. As soon as I saw the new logo, it screamed "METRO!" to me, and I straight away concluded that it captures the motion and feel of Metro; that's a deduction that should be obvious to anyone, without the need for Microsoft to mention it.
If i wasn't for Microsoft stating the reason why in their case, the logo works, which is why you have jumped on their bandwagon instead of thinking for yourself.
Personally i think it would work within the Metro UI, there is no reason why it wouldn't. Its fair to say that Metro is here to stay but without the rest of the UI being updated it just looks tacked on, why have it on a standard PC when you can just use the Start Menu to access apps.
If Microsoft held a poll for multiple designs of the Windows Logo i'm sure i different and much pleasing logo would have been picked, but its fair to say that opinion is devided and for what i have read not many people like it.
