So do you guys like the new Windows 8 logo that just came out?
It looks like this:
And here is the blog post to prove it: Windows Blog
It feels like a downgrade to me. Maybe they are just trying to restore the classic feel of a window for a logo.
It looks very similar to the Windows 1.0 logo, but it also fits metro. What are they going to do about all of the Window logos on keyboards? Let's hear how you feel.
We have earlier seen new Windows 8 logo posted by various sites online, now Microsoft has officially confirmed it on Windows Team Blog that Windows 8 would indeed have a new logo all styled in blue color. The blog post states that this new logo would indeed reflect the metro style design principles which is indeed used by Microsoft in almost every product. Here is what they have to say about the logo-
New Windows 8 logo confirmed by Microsoft | Windows 8 Beta
Looks very 80's...and that's not a compliment. A Guy
I really don't like the shade of blue they used...
I feel.............ouch. Wow, this is a genuine shock for me. But at least they didn't cut out the Start button entirely.
Wow, I...I don't know. I get the concept behind the design of it, but gee willakers! It's...more retro and less metro. I would had figured Microsoft would had gone with a white/monochrome flag to match the charms icons and have it reflect the color changes of the Start Screen to reflect on the flag and charms icons.
Now, the question I have to ask is, 1) what is to happen with EVERY single Start key on keyboards and Windows 7 slates and looking odd and 2) what will this mean for Windows Phone 8? I almost feel like that Windows Phone 8 will not be an upgrade option for Windows Phone 7 users mostly because of the white Start flag every handset has.
I...........WOW. I don't know if the Windows Division seems to understand metro design. It's not really supposed to have more retro tones, it's supposed to be simple, clean, based on typography, and vibrant in its design; not something that is more nostalgic retro than anything....
Odd? That design is somewhat a watered down version of the keyboard logo on ALL HP laptops, and keyboards (Windows key)
Actually in my opinion the B&W Windows key logo that HP uses is better looking than the one Microsoft decided on. Is it me, or does
the logo they decided on look like 4 boxes stacked 2 side by side, or just a plus sign inside a box?
