    What are you're thoughts on the new redesign? Love it or hate it? http://windowsteamblog.com/windows/b...dows-logo.aspx

    IMO its a little too minimalistic and strikes me as a bit odd looking but I don't know why...

    Apparently it's a window now, not a flag. :dry

    It's a shame it's lost its famous 4 colours, the logo will never be the same now. :(

    I like it. The 4 colour flag was always an eyesore.

    The reason they chose one color is so it can always match the user's theme--something we WP users should be used to. I must say that this isn't my favorite design I've ever seen. I would have much preferred a flat window over this awkward angle (which is actually pretty sad to realize).

    Honestly though, I really just want to know how this will affect the WP logo, as it is a tile with the old XP logo inside.

    Phones: HTC 8X & HTC Trophy & Samsung Focus
    PC:Dell Studio XPS 1640

    Spitfire 4.0, my HTC Imagio, rest in peace.

    Yeah, lots of mixed opinions on the new design. I don't mind the window over flag choice its just the color and angle. I agree with Figure 8 Dash that it looks better flipped

    They should've just made it a square tile with the white Window's "flag," like Windows Phone logo...

    I like it. The "flag" needed to retire. This will look good in context as the start charm ECT.

    I do think the old logo needed to be updated, but the new one is too bland to me.

    I have to agree. It looks a lot more balanced for some reason.

    Microsoft could just go the redneck way and have Calvin (Calvin and Hobbes) peeing on the Apple or Android logo while looking at his windows phone as their logo...LOL

    To me it, with the window diminishing to the left it just looks like a backwards arrow. At the very least it should be pointing forwards.

    Otherwise I like it. I like that it will fit with the theme colour of the user; and, well I'm just a sucker for the Segoe font.
