    Wow, that's a lot different from what I'm used to. To be honest, I think they can just keep the current Windows logo. All they have to do is make it look a little more modern and it's ready for a new OS. To go for a whole new logo might be pushing it.

    As Microsoft prepares for the launch of Windows 8, the new version of its operating system, it has announced a bold new identity that takes the iconic Windows logo back to its roots—as a window. Designed by Pentagram’s Paula Scher, the logo re-imagines the familiar four-color symbol as a modern geometric shape that introduces a new perspective on the Microsoft brand.

    Meeting with Microsoft early in the development process, Scher asked: “Your name is Windows. Why are you a flag?”

    New Windows 8 logo confirmed by Microsoft


    Earlier in February, Internet leaks showed that Microsoft was creating a new Windows logo for the launch of Windows 8. At the time of the reports, Microsoft didn't confirm or deny any plans to change the logo and some writers even said it was a hoax. Today, Microsoft revealed that the reports were true and that it was indeed redesigning the logo for Windows 8.

    Click image for larger versionWow, today, I was doing a Windows 8 DP install on friend's laptop and I wanted to find an awesome lock screen picture. So I gandered through the bing.com and found this. I think this work a little better for a logo I think, it's modern but keeps the classic red, green, blue, yellow coloring and it also looks like a window.
