The new icons deemphasize the letter for each Office app, but still manage to
look familiar. “Our design solution was to de-couple the letter and the symbol
from the icons, essentially creating two panels (one for the letter and one for
the symbol) that we can pair or separate,” explains Jon Friedman, partner
director of design at Microsoft. “This allows us to maintain familiarity while
still emphasizing simplicity when inside the app.”
Admittedly, they're not yet again skeuomorphic but there's no denying that the
"new modern" eschews the ugly flat design forced on consumers several years back.
I still like /libre office/ better

X is work. Y is play. Z is keep your mouth shut.
