    That really is cool.

    I wish Microsoft would rethink some of their other new logos, like for Silverlight, which is an amorphous animating blob.

    I hate to be contrary, but it looks pretty stupid to me. Just use a frecken basketball net for the logo and be done with it already/

    Or fishing nets?

    Edit 1: The new .NET logo looks nice. I'd begun to think that they had forgotten about the old one.

    I think a basketball net better describes .NET

    Quick marketing people, change the logo to basketball net before any noticed you designed yet another squiggly line logo.

    What do fishing nets say? I'm a PC and I fish?

    The basketball net is clearly better. Basketball is a competition and .NET helps you rise above your competition. Plus basketball nets go against the typical stereotype that [.NET] developers are fat slobs who play no sports. No, using .NET means you are a jock now. And jocks get all the ladies.

    All this logo tells me is "Photoshop design intern", or "$19.95 your logo made while you shop". Now a basketball net, that would be special.

    I don't think nets of any kind have anything to do with .NET .

    Its hard to come up with a logo for it, so they come up with something abstract that they feel fits. What does the Visual Studio logo represent?--a bunch of segments linked together in a moebius, I think when they designed that they thought it represented how the development platform was a for a bunch of solutions working together into one design.

    The new .NET logo sort of looks like a thread (or ribbon) being threaded, and I think it kind of fits the point also.

    Note how it's shaped like the letter "N".

    I have no complaints with the logo, but I think it could be beefed up a bit. I think the composition of the logo is too simple. Compare with the new Photoshop logo.

    well I'm with you here, I prefer the old one, although a logo doesn't mean anything especially if it's .NET

    Nice one. The other one was, indeed, getting old Smiley

    They should have changed the name to go with the logo, ".NET" is still hard to search for on Google.

    New logo is fresh and is more aligned with products and services like Silverlight and Live Mesh. And there is also vertical variant of logo: http://www.uxpassion.com/2008/10/new-microsoft-net-logo-and-branding/
