Pretty soon, we may not be able to write anything with the *word* windows in it ?

Perhaps they should be wiser and allow the user to choose the icon as a part of their desktop customization?
Make that available in Themes and let the user select whatever appeals to them (including a penguin or an apple even).

That's nice. Of course we all hope the new gen software is competent. We aren't really talking about that.

(I just knew someone was going to say something this. Although I expected worse. Something like "really? Who cares about the stupid logo0? As long as it works" Can't we banter anymore? hehehe)

I think I know the real reason they are doing this. Keep in mind when I say this I love MS and am not an Apple fan.... they are once again following Apple's lead.
I'd bet $100 within 3 years you WILL start to see laptops with... you guessed it: the new Windows logo emblazoned on the lid. And it may even glow blue.
The next next gen Windows phones? Yep. Same thing.

My error. I thought we were bantering.

And, over the years, I have heard vague rumors that some people think the software is not competent. At least, I thought I had heard rumors, suspicions, and accusations. Contentions, even.
