Windows 8 Metro Not Just UI, But a New Platform, a Reimagining of Windows
The Windows 8 Metro user interface demos that Microsoft has shared with the public so far need to be considered representative of only the tip of the Metro iceberg.
There’s much more to Metro than just a pretty UI, according to Steven Sinofsky, president, Windows and Windows Live Division.
Only the surface of the operating system, Metro acts as a new platform designed to catalyze the creation of next generation applications. Windows 8’s shiny new look and feel in combination with Metro apps will provide an immersive UX to users of the OS.
