    I like it - neat, clean and contemporary looking. The old wavy logo is gone after 25 years. What do you think?

    I think it is alright, sufficiently refreshed but yet recognisable. An evolutionary, rather than revolutionary, style change.

    I'm in throes of ecstasy. (Logo changes always have that effect on me.)

    Don't forget to hang onto those old logos, though. Sure to become valuable collector's items.

    It's okay. I like it better than the Windows 8 logo, that's for sure.

    Did they fire all of their graphics designers? I think they are taking the simplicity thing way too far, especially the UI on Office and Visual Studio.

    Simplicity comes at a cost. Seems like MS is betting quite heavily on that. Anyway, I can't really be bothered over such things...

    I personally couldn't care less if their logo was a banana, it doesn't affect the software I use.

    Inappropriate image/reply removed.

    There's really not much more to say about a simple graphic change. Thread closed.
