Microsoft's new logo has ties to the past

Earlier today we shared that Microsoft was changing its logo and based on our poll, most seem to like it. The logo is simple, effective and more closely matches the Modern UI. But is has strong ties to Microsoft's past.

The above commercial is from 1995 for Windows 95. While most will remember the 1995 era logo being more of a wavy flag, Microsoft did use the more simplistic tile box.

Sure, the colors of each tile has changed slightly, the design similar to what was revealed today. Microsoft may be moving to a Modern UI styled interface but the logo seems to have a retro feel.  The new logo may be a signal to the future but it's also a blast from the past.
