New Logo for .NET

Microsoft .NET

I can't say we needed a new logo for .NET, but there have been a few nice logos coming out of Redmond lately. Actually, I never really considered the .NET logo to be an official logo. It was simply some text with very basic coloring. Either way, we now have a new logo to enjoy. I have to say I like it more, but I don't know if I can say I "love" it. I do like the fact that they're looking to refresh the "look." This makes me wonder if we'll see a new logo for Visual Studio 2010. The Visual Studio logo is something like 10-12 years old. I don't know exactly, but it's perhaps the oldest logo that hasn't changed. Well, other than Windows. The Windows logo changes with every release, but that change is relatively minor. I don't see that logo drastically changing for a long, long time. Actually, Microsoft is probably more likely to release a new OS than change that logo. Who knows... that'd probably still be called "Windows," even tho the change would be reminiscent of the MacOS 9 to 10 change.
