SOFTWARE HOUSE Microsoft has allegedly reworked its legendary logo for its upcoming Windows 8 operating system release.

The Windows logo has always been a distinct multi-coloured waving flag that has continuously evolved over the years. Microsoft has prepared a significant redesign for Windows 8 which is monochromatic and straight cut, according to an image released by Cnbeta.

The potentially faked image has been backed up by a photograph of a tablet with the logo on a lone button. The traditional coloured flag now looks like a 3D view of a Cornish flag.

Microsoft's new minimalist and simple logo design does fit in with the metro look interface on Windows 8 and Windows Phone. If this leaked image is the new Windows logo it will mean the familiar wavy squares will be put to bed after 22 years.

Microsoft will unveil its Windows 8 consumer preview beta release later this month during Mobile World Congress. µ
