New logo for Microsoft Windows 8
For the latest version of their operating system Microsoft has made Windows look more like windows.
The new logo reflects the new Metro-style user interface seen in Windows 8, while staying within logo traditions used for past Windows products, ranging from Windows 1.0 to Windows 7. The new design has lost the multicolored panes and flag-like aspects seen with earlier logos.
The new logo is squarer and flatter than recent ones, much like the Windows 8 user interface itself. Microsoft has previously explained that the Metro UI used in Windows 8 was designed to make it easier to access to programs that were getting buried in the start-screen menu system. Microsoft made the access more direct through its tile-like UI in Windows 8, while also facilitating touch interactions.
Regarding to the font used in the logo, this is the International Typographic Style (or Swiss design). Such font is typically used to indicate directions in subways and airport terminals.
