Microsoft redesigns Windows logo: No more wavy flag!

As has been rumored, Microsoft is indeed changing its famous Windows logo for Windows 8.

Instead of the familiar multi-colored, wavy flag, the Windows 8 logo will be single-colored, with rectangular tiles that look more like, well, a window, than a wavy flag. The tiles also reflect the new design style of Windows 8 — called Metro, which emphasizes bold, graphic rectangular tiles. (The single color in the logo can be changed according to user preference, according to Sam Moreau, principal director of user experience for Windows, who wrote about the redesign in an official blog post.)

Here’s what the Windows 8 logo looks like:

And here’s what Metro on Windows 8 looks like:
