Microsoft Unveils First New Company Logo In 25 Years

dalleboy Re:Launched? Unveiled? (378 comments)

Too bad even Microsoft cannot keep the colors in sync on their own homepage.

Of the four logos on the first page, plus the "official print" (in jpeg, mind you) logo, each of them used different colors. The green was most apparent (of course) and it is easy to see the difference between the images, but even the other colors differ.

Moonlight 1.0 Brings Silverlight Content To Linux

dalleboy Re:Unusable microsoft software as usual. (346 comments)

This is probably due to the Silverlight initialization Javascript which only works on Windows for IE, Firefox, and on OS-X for Safari. Unless the Silverlight initialization Javascript is updated on the webserver which hosts the Silverlight application, which I doubt Microsoft will do, there is almost no way that this will work in Moonlight.
