DarkLordAkuma Yeah, that new Windows logo is pretty terrible.

Fair play. I think they should use their new company logo as the Windows one too.

DarkLordAkuma that's because those are Windows logos, not necessarily Microsoft although their new logo is pretty similar to the Windows one now.

Your windows 8 logo in your picture doesn't have the colour!

Dynamite Now all they have to do is come full circle with the next logo.

I like how their logos have continued to devolve over the years:

I like the new logo, and like the art direction they are taking, however I hate that they are forcing the Metro interface to the desktop computer. The metro interface belongs to mobile PERIOD! I hope they wake up and for windows 9 create different user interfaces for desktop/mobile.

I like the new Microsoft logo since it goes in with the clean appearance that they are going through. No awful looking gradients or effects? Simple and effective. The Windows 8 logo isn't that bad but all blue? Not sure about the Metro UI though. Would work well on tablets and mobile touch screen devices, but on a full blown PC I found it too awkward. The old classic explorer interface is still there though all but the start menu. Why the Metro UI couldn't have been done as a Windows feature that could've been disabled through the 'Add/Remove Features' function I've no idea. The learning curve for the new interface will cost businesses too much in retraining and will be too much for other people to work out. I'd be able to use it if I took the effort to get used to it but other people wouldn not. The old interface should've been kept, especially for a business point of view because as I see it, Explorer with the Start Menu is familiar and effective.

Won't upgrade to Windows 8 when it comes out. Too much hassle. Plus multitasking in Metro is a nightmare, since only one window can actually be seen at any one time. What Microsoft have done with Windows 8 is not so much as stepped forwards, moreso stepped to the side. They've seen how lucrative the tablet market is and have forgot about desktops.

I have used Windows 8 in a virtual environment and actually found using Mac OSX to be easier.

It's too much like the Windows logo.
