    Do we know what is going to be different about Windows 8 yet? Other than the boring new logo, that is. LOL

    I actually like the new logo. It looks like a window, not a flag.

    Sometimes the simpler the better, look at the Beatles record label Apple, it was just an Apple, then along came a computer company that liked the logo and the rest is history.. Seriously though there is nothing simpler than the Apple logo yet it is recognized worldwide.

    Reminds me of the acronym KISS (keep it simple, stupid).

    Windows really is not bad anymore. Although I am currently using a Linux avatar (I dual boot Linux and Windows), I have not had any issues with Windows 7 Professional 64-bit.

    I was using a customers Win7 PC the other day and I still found myself asking, why?!

    I agree its better than Vista by a long shot, it's still a annoying OS. I'm still running XP on the Windows machine I have.

    I think it's that color of blue chosen. If it were a little different and maybe the word "windows" being black or something with the number "8" I may not think it was ugh.

    I would be neat to know the real story behind that selection.

    It's simple like what dush said but very uninspiring. They should stay with the Windows 7 logo and start putting it on the back of laptops and have light shining through the window. It's a complete rip off of Apple but who cares about originality anymore.

    Not a bad idea, but Microsoft is not a hardware company. My HP laptop does have a glowing HP logo on the back.

    Wow really, a glowing HP logo. That's seriously cheesy. I had no idea they were doing that now. Tell me it at least glows blue.
