    Right, I understand that. BUT where will/is the logo at? I do not see it what-so-ever.

    In few weeks, Mike. We will find it out. (at least at the start screen, or when opening system property, maybe?)

    I like the colorful logo of MS
    Me too. I think they're willing to put a metro style flag, maybe similar to Morpheus sig.

    New "Windows" logo unveiled in Windows 8 Consumer Preview


    Microsoft parts ways with 22-year old logo

    Since the launch of Microsoft Windows 3.0 in May 1990, the Redmond-based software giant has continued to use the same four-colored flapping flag to distinguish its most significant software product to the world at large. Over the past two successive decades, the flag has undergone several color-graded changes, including some noteworthy facelifts (see: Windows XP and Windows 7), but has ultimately remained the same notoriously recognized "Windows flag" for nearly three generations of PC users.

    Redesigning the Windows Logo

    With Windows 8, we approached the logo redesign with a few key goals on mind.

    1. We wanted the new logo to be both modern and classic by echoing the International Typographic Style (or Swiss design) that has been a great influence on our Metro style design philosophy. Using bold flat colors and clean lines and shapes, the new logo has the characteristics of way-finding design systems seen in airports and subways.

    2. It was important that the new logo carries our Metro principle of being “Authentically Digital”. By that, we mean it does not try to emulate faux-industrial design characteristics such as materiality (glass, wood, plastic, etc.). It has motion – aligning with the fast and fluid style you’ll find throughout Windows 8.

    3. Our final goal was for the new logo to be humble, yet confident. Welcoming you in with a slight tilt in perspective and when you change your color, the logo changes to reflect you. It is a “Personal” Computer after all.

    I wouldn't mind if they did but I would like them to at least allow us to choose which logo we want. Like, you can use the Windows 8 logo or the Windows 7 logo, it would be cool. But I really wouldn't mind that much.
