    It is modern to those aged 12 or less.

    They haven't seen it before.

    On second thought - they probably have - playschool is still going isn't it?

    Frankly I despise the Metro UI (ON A DESKTOP OR LAPTOP) although it is perfect and actually GOOD for phones and tablets!

    MS should backtrack on the name change and continue to call the new mobile UI "Metro"

    On Second Thought: Microsoft Is Calling Metro "Modern UI Style" Now
    Hi there

    How can it possibly be "Modern". Looks remarkable similar to the "Kiddies Section" of AOL from 1996 so AT LEAST 18 YEARS OLD.
    In fact OLDER Interface than XP !!!.

    (In computing terms 18 years is almost a Geological age ago - so the Interface really belongs in equivalent years to "The age of the Dinosaurs").

This would really help me with reading at night. There are plenty of screen dimming utilities, but they don't carry over into Modern, only dimming the desktop. I was wondering if there's a way to dim the entire UI, maybe as a default option. Thanks.
