Does The New Microsoft Logo Come From The Lowly Microsoft Outlook Categorized Icon?

Today as I was using Outlook I noticed a striking similarity between the Outlook “Categorize” icon and the new Microsoft Logo. Did some designer make a million dollars by rearranging the colors?

Did the marketing gurus at Microsoft say “How are we going to categorize our divisions at Microsoft in our new logo?” The Office division’s answer of course “Let’s use Microsoft Outlook” to organize our divisions. As the designer guys were doing this they said “Aha! we even have our logo element…and voila..the New Microsoft Logo?
