For the first time since 1989 Microsoft introduce a new Logo. The new logo stands for the new way that Microsoft stands for. The Logo contains an symbol that is based on the windows operating system logo, that is first used in Windows 95.
Itís been 25 years since weíve updated the†Microsoft logo†and now is the perfect time for a change. This is an incredibly exciting year for Microsoft as we prepare to release new versions of nearly all of our products. From Windows 8 to Windows Phone 8 to Xbox services to the next version of Office, you will see a common look and feel across these products providing a familiar and seamless experience on PCs, phones, tablets and TVs. This wave of new releases is not only a reimagining of our most popular products, but also represents a new era for Microsoft, so our logo should evolve to visually accentuate this new beginning.
The symbol is†squares with colours that stands for the Microsft main line-up.
