    I think the new logo and font look nice and clean and fresh.

    They are one of those companies that could make the logo look like the silhouette of a girl spreading her legs and people will still have to buy their products.

    If it didn't say Microsoft next to it, I'd think it was a new Google service logo.

    It looks so much like al lot of other company logos that it's rendered itself useless. I thought the point of a logo was to be instantly associable to a brand or product.

    I think it's kinda funny that MS updates their logo about the same time Windows 95 came out, 17 years ago.
