Looks a simpleton designed them.

Really MS should just call this new version Window Mobile because it's been built around mobile device IO's.

Now do the PC version. Put back all the great features that were part of Windows 7. START MENU, Aero Glass, Desktop Gadgets to name a few

It's the "Metro logo"! You know flat tiles! Aero Glass removed!

What happened to the ugly "BLUE" logo they recently changed to???

M$ marketing you have to love it!!! Ain't gonna work!!! LOL!!!

i like it. i think the other guy is right just because it is related to win 8 we shouldn't hate it. on another note, i actually like everything except the shut down of win 8. it is nice and compact and good feeling.

Does this mean that the logo in the "Rumor: Windows 8 Pro to Cost $199" article seen on the boxes is going to be changed to this logo?

Whatever floats Ballmer's boat. But I liked the slanted solid colored (blue) logo much better.

It's not new. It's from 1995.

Break from the past? No thanks. The past was awesome. The present, and the forseeable future are shit.

Logo isn't the issue. Microsoft, in general, seriously went downhill after Gates handed over the controls.

I agree since Gates left it has been steady downhill...

People complaining about the new logo need a whambulance. Seriously, who cares what the logo looks like. You pay for functional software, not a pretty logo. It could be a dogs anus for all I care, but as long as the software does what I need it to do without being buggy or having half a$$ed patches and sloppy coding, that's all that matters.

If they want the Microsoft logo to reflect Windows 8 it should be shaped like a fresh, steaming cow pie.

Lame. Boring.

That's Amazing! How did they manage that? I bet it cost them more than 1.2 million dollars to have four squares next to each other, all the meetings and designers. I am impressed. I had better take the rest of the day off. Four squares. Genius.

And you know what?
All that cost will be reflected in what we pay.
Aren't we the lucky ones?

Whatta bunch of curmudgeons in this post. Personally, I really like it. Simple, bright and fun. A nice break from the past.

Are we related?

If I didn't already associate the arrangement of colors with MS, I'd say it looks like Duplo meets Purina. I think they've gone over-simplified on this one. I preferred the perspective-style one that was teased.

On a positive note, it's a step up from the wavy Windows one. I still associate the wavy logo with Win 3.1.

Not sure why people are throwing a fuss about it. Company logos rarely undergo radical design changes. They often change overtime and only marginally. Just look at the history of the Windows Logo...

Anything Microsoft & Windows 8 related garners hate it seems. When did this site become high school when just showing up was enough to get negative comments?

I didn't notice the new logo until after I'd read the article. That's a bad sign.

Plain and BORING....just like the fugly Metro interface...or whatever the hell they're calling it this week....

Looks like the typical Microsoft "windows" logo to me...
