Doug's Mailbag: More Logo Thoughts

Here's another batch of opinions on Microsoft's new logo (and we were able to find a couple positive thoughts):

It just proves no one likes change and everyone has an opinion. At least it shows Microsoft is trying to change perception, which clearly needs to happen, because no matter how good the products are, the perception is an 'old' company and not the shiny new penny.

I think someone at Microsoft has been playing too much Minecraft or letting the developers do graphic design. I liked the Aero Glass look.

On the bright side, it does provide a simple logo. What is hard to differentiate though is this new Microsoft logo from the old Windows logo
-Josh

It is SO cool. I mean, don't you think it's so cool how Micorosft made the 'ft' at the end touch each other as if they were just one letter? And the way those white lines intersect in the middle of the four colored squares --  just awesome.Aand that perfect pantone shade of 'rainy day grey' that they chose for the name Microsoft -- killer logo guys. I know you agree with me, don't be shy to speak up.
-Hmmm...

It's a logo, doesn't affect the product. It's not much more than a crappy driver's license photo. Move along, not much to discuss here.
