Microsoft So, Microsoft Office for the iPad is supposedly coming, dressed in a Metro user interface. Fun, since running a fresh Metro application (like the XBox Live one) on the iPad accentuates just how outdated and archaic iOS really looks and feels next to Metro. An Android version is supposedly not in the works, but that's to be expected - Apple and Microsoft have long been best buds (although this is still a total and utter surprise to some, which is kind of precious in a Bambi's-first-steps kind of way).

"dressed in a Metro user interface" ≠ "The app’s user interface is similar to the current OneNote app, but it has hints of Metro"

And Metro isn't a GUI but a "design language" anyway. I can't really imagine how all that blocks would be useful for an office program anyway.
