    Ahh ... so THAT's why they can't call it Metro anymore!


    The name is already taken!

    I will never understand why metro cannot be used. It's not as if they are claiming metro is a representation of another company. Also the word is too common. If it was a special name that no one has heard of then fine, but this is just ridiculous.

    The problem I find with it is that if they continue the design trend with Windows 9, it would sound very odd to say, "The new Windows 9 is designed Windows 8 style..."

    Uh hu....

    According to reports, the Metro UI will from now on be referred to by Microsoft as the Modern UI. Poorly replaced brand name, if you ask me, but at least it's better than we thought it would be.

    The modern UI....ehh, it kind of sounds ok, but it's too general and vague. Metro is specific.
