+$After a quarter of a century, Microsoft has finally treated itself to a new标志设计+$. And it points clearly to the future path it's laid out for itself as it fights threats to its decades-long dominance.
+$Gone is the chunky bold type of old, with its now-dated "go faster" slant. And in comes new, slimmed down lettering based on Microsoft's preferred+$Segoe+$font.
+$Most significantly, the new logo incorporates the Windows colours, in the form of four neat square tiles. This is a clear nod to the Metro operating system, Microsoft's great white hope, which has now been renamed Windows UI.
+$This aims to bring together its diverse range of products - Windows 8 PCs, Surface tablets, Windows Phones and Xbox 360 - into a more unified and interdependent offering.
+$The release of the new logo comes as Microsoft prepares to release new versions of nearly all its products – such as Windows 8, Windows Phone 8, and the next version of Office.
+$The company will roll the new identity out on its website, ad campaigns and stores, starting with stores in Boston, Seattle’s University Village and Bellevue, Washington.
