Windows You can say what you will about Windows Phone and Windows 8's Metro interface (I refuse to drop that name) - it's inefficient, unpopular, cumbersome, beautiful, ugly, organised, clean, limiting - but there's one thing we can all agree on: it's unique and distinctive. CNet has published a profile of Microsoft's Albert Shum, the man behind Metro, and he highlights what I think is at the very core of Microsoft's problems in mobile right now.

The biggest quality of Metro is its advanced animating transitions. It's in fact technical and not entirely related to its design choices.
Android for one could possibly adopt such transitions without affecting Holo design language. The technical restrictions keep it from doing that.
