Please don't lynch me but I like it...</div>
</div>
<br>
I do too. It's nice for the minimalists out there, or the people who like the look of Metro, not necessarily the feel of how it works. I like the look (don't bash me). I just don't like how it works.<br><br>

LoL at only a Graphics Designer being allowed to comment on this logo ?<br><br>
This is the internet, You are whatever you want to be, that doesnt make you Good at it.<br><br>
There is this Elephant that uses Paint brishes. Would that qualify it to comment on this? Something tells me that doesnt make him a good artist or that his opinion shoul dbe strictly followed.<br><br>
I myself find that this Logo is simply Too Simple. They should atleast come up with something and say that each Square Represent something<br><br><span style="text-decoration:underline;">Ease of Use | Accesibility</span><br>

well, at least its not the stupid blue thing.<br><br>
Still. Just take that, nudge the top left down, and the top right up (allow for bending...) and... maybe add some gradient (all MINOR tweaks):<br><img alt="windows-logo.jpg" class="bbcode_img" src="http://www.music4less.net/4less/gallery/windows-logo.jpg">

Try rendering something very complex and interesting, and have it viewed about a billion times a day and tell me how that works out for your bandwidth and page load times. <img alt="rolleyes.gif" class="bbcode_smiley" src="http://files.overclock.net/images/smilies/rolleyes.gif"><br><div class="quote-container"><span>Quote:</span>

<div class="quote-block">The logo has two components: the logotype and the symbol. For the logotype, we are using the Segoe font which is the same font we use in our products as well as our marketing communications. The symbol is important in a world of digital motion (as demonstrated in the video above.) The symbol’s squares of color are intended to express the company’s diverse portfolio of products.</div>

I like it, along with their new website.<br><br>
Was getting tired of all the glossy and gradient overused crap out there.

Blue = Windows<br>
Orange = Office<br>
Green = XBOX<br>
Yellow = Unknown<br><br>
Microsoft is applying this new mainstream Metro look across all of their products. So they made a logo to portfolio them.

Metro and the new logo remind me of that fateful day in April of 1985, and ....<br><br><br><a class="H-lightbox-open" href="http://www.overclock.net/content/type/61/id/1016696/"><img alt="" class="lightbox-enabled" data-id="1016696" data-type="61" src="http://www.overclock.net/content/type/61/id/1016696/width/500/height/1000/flags/LL" style="; width: 164px; height: 307px"></a>

:::Sigh:::<br><br>
They are going absolutely mad with this Metro thing.</div>
</div>
<br>
Every time I hear Metro, I always think Metro-rail and metrosexual.<br><br>
I think they just want to be associated with simplicity.<br>
I guess they're just wanting to sell more products via marketing than actual quality of the product.<br><br><br>
edit- how much did they pay for this design that a 6 year old can do in MS-Paint?
