After 25 years, Microsoft have updated their logo to better reflect Microsoft as they currently are.
Using the Segoe font used elsewhere on their products and bearing a new stylised logo of four small coloured squares, the new logo looks like it belongs in the new UI;
I’ve tended to be quite reactionary about change in the past.
When the ribbon came out for example, my initial response was that I didn’t like it and remained with Office 2003 until Office 2010 came out. When I did do the upgrade though and started to use the ribbon I found that I quite liked it.
With Windows 8 and the Modern UI, I seem to have the opposite initial reaction; I quite like it.
I’ve played with the Developer and Consumer Previews and have downloaded the recently released MSDN version to test Microsoft Dynamics GOP with, and each version has become more and more polished. I don’t share the reservations of some people and the Home Screen on a desktop as it does integrate well with mouse and keyboard.
As to the new logo; I like it a lot. Nice, clean and simple.
Feel free to leave a comment with your view of the logo.
