Still tweaking the colours though... Yellow is not yellow enough and red and green need to be a bit lighter.

if you look back to the origins of the logo you see that it really was meant to be a window. "Windows" really is a beautiful metaphor for computing and with the new logo we wanted to celebrate the idea of a window, in perspective. Microsoft and Windows are all about putting technology in people's hands to empower them to find their own perspectives. And that is what the new logo was meant to be. We did less of a re-design and more to return it to its original meaning and bringing Windows back to its roots – reimagining the Windows logo as just that – a window.

i quite like the new logo actually.

logos aren't meant to be flash and fancy - the best ones are very simple and recognizable at all sizes and on all printed media - even black and white. having lots of fancy colour gradients, reflections, drop shadows etc looks good on hi-res screens, but doesn't always print well.

here's my quick crap modification - it has the added benefit of looking anti-google.

I'm supposed to see my nephew this weekend. I'll give him some crayons and a piece of paper and we'll have that logo beat in no time.

Should I make the two sections on the left a tad lighter?

Apple went monotone so why can't MS?

a logo should be simple and quickly identifiable - this unfortunately lacks iconic vigor though

I don't know what it is with MS and graphics - the ms phone, metro, xbox, zune all lack something with their interface
