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.

Well...Microsoft and all the other big players have been playing the IP (patent/copyright/trademark) 'cease & desist' game for years. Usually against small companies and start-ups that didn't have the financial resources to fight back. It was only a matter of time before one of them got hoisted on their own petard.

All I can say is: "How's it feel now?"
