Microsoft has unveiled their new logo.
My opinion, it looks sleek and awesome.

The major thing you will notice is that it has discarded the glossy look. This is no surprise to people who have seen or read about the upcoming Microsoft Windows 8 OS. Because, Microsoft has ditched the Aero UI what was introduced in Windows Vista and then continued in Windows 7 for a simple and sleek UI, which, by all frankness, is amazing. This ‘use of simple colors’ is the basic rule they followed in developing the new Modern UI(like that you saw in Windows Phone 7). Microsoft has been busy lately, after deporting the final build of Windows 8 to the manufacturers, they have been on this ‘Change the UI of our every product’ spree, that they have changed their websites’ designs too.
We might think, ” MICROSOFT? SUCH A BIG COMPANY IS USING SIMPLE COLORS, WITHOUT NO GLOSS? ARE THEY MAD?”
They aren’t. I find these pleasant mix of simple colors very pleasing and welcoming, and I am sure most of you feel the same.
Here is their official video which shows their new UI for all of its products.
I am completely looking forward to the release of Microsoft Windows 8.
