Microsoft revamps logo for 1st time in 25 years

REDMOND, Wash. - Microsoft's corporate logo has a new look to set the stage for upcoming products designed to cast the world's largest software maker in a new light.

It marks the first time that Microsoft Corp. has revamped its logo in 25 years. The new logo cast the Microsoft name in a lighter and straight font instead of the italic bold typeface used in the old standby. The new logo also includes the familiar red, blue, yellow and green colors used in the flag on Microsoft's Windows operating system in a square box.

Microsoft unveiled the new logo Thursday at three stores in Boston and the Seattle area.

The redesign comes as Microsoft prepares to release a dramatic makeover of Windows and a tablet computer called Surface.
