With Windows 8, the company is again changing the logo, this time to a monochromatic angular style to mimic the overall design directive of the operating system itself known as Metro. Here is a sampling of Windows logos since Windows 3.1 that the company included in its Windows Team blog along with the explanation of what the company was trying to say with the images.
