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.

Perhaps it means the "formally known as Metro" interface wont be making it to Windows 9?

I think the reverse - Windows 8 interface is a statement of intent; this is the Windows of the future. The Windows 9 interface will be the Windows 8 interface enhanced.
