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.

"METRO IS OUR DESIGN LANGUAGE. WE CALL IT METRO BECAUSE IT'S MODERN AND CLEAN. IT'S FAST AND IN MOTION. IT'S ABOUT CONTENT AND TYPOGRAPHY. AND IT'S ENTIRELY AUTHENTIC."

You have GOT to be kidding me; I just vomited in my mouth... That's as bad, and less accurate than:

"ASS REEK, IT'S THE NEW PERFUME! IT'S PUNGENT & DISTRACTING! AND IT'S ENTIRELY AUTHENTIC."

Didn't you mean...

"WINDOWS 8 IS OUR DESIGN LANGUAGE. WE CALL IT WINDOWS 8 BECAUSE IT'S MODERN AND CLEAN. IT'S FAST AND IN MOTION. IT'S ABOUT CONTENT AND TYPOGRAPHY. AND IT'S ENTIRELY AUTHENTIC."

...Sorry, I just had to.
