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.

You can't just use a trademark belonging to one of your important partners and forget to ask them if that's ok.

It is one word in the dictionary. Did MS try to trademark it? If not why can't they use that word to refer to something? If MS would have called it awesome would you think it fair they would trademark the word awesome?
