New System Center logo

Summary: A small, non-technical point today, but interesting (I hope): it looks like System Center has a new logo.

As Stefan Stranger points out, it looks like System Center has a new logo:

Historically, when System Center documents or web pages included a logo, it was on what I would call 'the brick' theme:

Back in the BackOffice days there was a similar theme based on a horizontal brade.

So does the change mean anything? I'm not privy to marketing's thoughts, so I can't say whether the change is supposed to mean anything. But my first impression is that I like it. Even my wife once commented on the brick theme that it seemed like someone was trying to put up a wall. Not very inclusive.

Does the new logo mean anything to you?

 UPDATE (6/18/08): the System Center Team Blog has more details. Be sure to check out their link to a SQL Server team blog that goes into even more details.

Looks too much like a Tornado for us mid-easterners.

I like the new logo better than the old one. .. maybe it was just me, but I didn't even really think of the bricks as a logo until you mentioned it. . . :)
