I have a feeling this design will look extremely dated in only a couple of years. This fad of requiring simplicity and clean lines won't last forever.

the saddest true thing i read all day... they changed an icon, into the most generic thing they possible could.

Are they serious? The 4-coloured logo they used for the last 20 years is instantly recognizable by almost anyone. The new logo isn't just ugly. It's also meaningless to the vast majority of consumers.


I wonder how much money they spent on coming up with that logo... The whole marketing department of Microsoft is a shambles.

The lesson from the picture is simple, whenever the logo is a windows flag with plain black text, that OS is good.

The other lesson is, wait for Windows 9 if you can :)

It's so fucking.... ugly.
Still performance-wise Windows 8 is great but god, it looks so bad on a PC. Yeah, it's great for tablets but for PC you definitely need to disable the Metro UI and use it with an improved Windows 7 interface. ( 10sec registry work)

Popular forms of torture in days of yore include thumbscrews, bamboo under the fingernails and Windows Millenium. Just displaying the Windows Me icon on your computer can cause random lockups and process slowdowns. Be thankful they didn't include it in their timeline.

I laughed at the fact that Windows ME wasn't even mentioned on that timeline. I guess because it's the OS that's best forgotten.

I actually enjoyed the Preview when I had it on my machine. It was fast and if you get use to the tiles and how to switch between the desktop and the tiles you navigate through stuff really quickly. It actually seemed to speed up my interaction with the PC. Took a second to get used to it though.

It is very plain, blah and ugly.
MS needs to hire a better designer/artist as this logo is atrocious, horrible and terrible.
I expected much better for the new Windows 8.
Back to the drawing board.
