Windows "Here's the official guidance, my sources say: Anything currently/formerly known as a 'Metro-Style application' (with or without a hyphen) will now be known officially as a 'Windows 8 application'. References to the 'Metro user interface' will now be replaced by "Windows 8 user interface." And instead of saying 'Metro design', the Softies and those adhering to their official guidelines will be using the words 'Windows 8 design'." Microsoft not being allowed to use the Metro name here is just as ridiculous as Apple trolling Samsung. All ridiculous exponents of the western world's IP fetish.

But what about Windows Phone 7 which was released two or more years before Windows 8??? I'm absolutely positive Microsoft was not designing Metro for use with Windows 8. It was merely a new phone/tablet UI that never caught on, so they forced it upon all Windows 8 users to get developers to adopt it.
