For the first time in 25 years, Microsoft has redesigned its corporate logo. As Mary Jo Foley reports Microsoft's logo gets a makeover, here are the basics:
The font is Segoe; the intention is meant to imply "digital motion." Segoe and motion are both key to the Microsoft's Metro interface/design philosophy, which has been a key component in a number of recent Microsoft products, services and Web sites. But because Metro is now on Microsoft's banned words list, Microsoft isn't able to say that the new logo reflects the company's Metro UI/design principles.
The new Microsoft logo has already made it to its new Boston store.

Microsoft's original logo was replaced in 1975 after a short shelf life.
