Looks good. Have recently jumped ship from Gmail to the new Outlook and prefer the look there. Plus I prefer having folders rather than the star system. 

Still undecided about Windows 8 though

Unrelated, but on Gmail you use labels instead of folders. The stars are for something else.

Oh yeah, labels, that was what I mean't to say... :)

Anyway, the new logo looks good.

Not bad, it is amazing how the most simplest of logos seem to be the best.

I don't think it is that well thought out, especally as the windows logo has been using those same 4 colours for the best part of 20 years. It looks like that have just taken a simplified windows logo.

Geez, I wonder how many millions they paid someone to come up with that?

I like the Telecom comparison :-)

The thing is that telecom ditched their one as it was dated, so were they ahead of their time? I am sure they paid a lot for their's too. They haven't advertised the 'Surface' in that ad either . It is all quite confused.

Hopefully the simplified logo means they are focusing their efforts into other areas which really matter.

Dreams are free right?

doesn't really look much different to me - but then I haven't used a Microsoft product in a number of years so working off a fading memory.
