Windows This is mandatory listening and watching material for understanding the design methodology and ideas behind the Metro interface in Windows 8 (and thus, Windows Phone 7). All this sounds great in theory, and Jensen Harris, one of the minds behind Metro, is clearly passionate about it - and I love people who are passionate about their work. It's just that to me, the Metro UI doesn't seem to work very well for actual work. I want window management! I'm taking all this into account for an article on Metro in the Developer Preview. Stay tuned.

From what I've seen, there's nothing preventing there being a Metro RSS reader that looks like that Android one. But I think that such RSS readers are going to look increasingly antiquated as time goes on.

Right, exactly. Nothing prevents Metro from apps from looking like the Android one. And if you watch the demos of the new Live Metro mail client, you see that that's basically how they implemented the UI.
