Manual window management is awful. Windows 8 ditched windows in favor of fullscreen apps. Traditional desktop window paradigms are powerful but obsolete.

Windows 9 unifies previous contrasting paradigms, taking design cues from all platforms and recent innovations.

Just an unofficial design concept, but damn, this is sexy. This is exactly what Windows needs - a combination of the old and new, leading to something seemingly far more usable than the monstrosity that is Metro in Windows 8.

Why? The word suits when one is discussing user interfaces, especially the different ways to interact with them. Is it overuse of the word that bothers you, the word itself, or some other reason? Is there another word that would work better?

Just curious, not trying to start anything. I guess I just don't see it as a bad, annoying, or ill-suited word when discussing this topic.
