The New Windows Logo

With the release date close to set for the new Windows 8 operating system, ~october 2012, Windows has hired Pentagram design agency to create a new logo. When i first read the news i didn’t think much of it until I read a statement from Paula Scher, of Pentagram about the previous Windows logo designs. Paula asked them a simple question, “your name is Windows. Why are you a flag?” After reading this I chuckled to myself while scrolling through a slideshow containing previous generations of Window’s operating systems’ logos.  I was fascinated for a short time why this had never occurred to me before, and thought i’d share for anyone else who wanted to take a look. Oh! and heres the new logo (not sure if its finalized yet).
