Typography:  Franklin Gothic Bold Italic
Launched:  February 2000

In February 2000, MSN introduced a new logo featuring a stylized butterfly, which it would use for the next decade. Due to its long use on many of Microsoft's products, this logo can still be found on certain webpages on some portals or within certain software, such as MSN Explorer. This logo was still used on the MSN Member Center website using the Windows XP-style look and feel until 2016, and on the Microsoft Update site in Windows Vista, alongside the 2003 Microsoft Office logo and the 1987 Microsoft logo.
