Microsoft unveils new Windows website with a new look

Now that Windows 8 is official, Microsoft is still going forward with the redesign and reimaging. Such is the case when you go to (opens in new tab) or even their sites as both are showing a high-contrast look with the new logo.

We have to admit that we really like this new look. It’s bold, striking and of course it keeps in line with Microsoft’s Modern UI approach. Will it sell PCs? Not necessarily but Microsoft’s new look and image are key factors for consumers and we think they nailed it.

  • Yeah the new design looks superb, extremely modern.. I have a feeling a lot of websites will follow this design language. As for Win 8 pro, I've had the full version the past few weeks now thru corporate licensing. I love it, they've been slowly updating things, apps getting updated. Very, very good.
