For some reason or other people simply don't like change. The old adage ring true 'if it ain't broke, don't fix it.' The windows logo is no exception. I dare say Microsoft spent a fortune having this very bland logo designed. It isn't striking; it doesn't immediately tell you that it is a Microsoft logo. It is, basically, just another logo! I suppose it will gow on users' but, frankly, I cannot see why Microsoft even bothered with a new logo. It is, after all, very basic in design. No, sorry, it's not for me!

As a former Advertising Executive, former Advertising Manager for a few newspapers, a former Commercial Printer Graphics Production business owner, and still a bit of a graphics designer, I can only say:

Before you pass judgment, see the Windows 8 logo animated by Pentagram, the team that designed it: New Work: Microsoft Windows 8 | New at Pentagram | Pentagram
Note also that according to Redesigning the Windows Logo, apparently when you change your color, the logo changes to reflect it.

It fits the Metro UI design perfectly, but it strays too far from the classic Windows logo. There has been a lot of change from early Windows logo to Windows 7, but you could always tell that it was the Windows logo. Now, it could be Fred's Windows from Cole County Arkansas (No idea if that exists, just a random place I thought of).
Edit: That goes to say that I don't really care for it.
