Name of Windows 8 UI changed
Everyone was calling it the Metro UI. Then Microsoft decided to change the name and call it something else. According to some documentation Microsoft is calling the new user interface for Windows 8 as Modern UI instead of Metro UI. What are the reasons for change, you might ask. A dispute with Microsoft’s European partner, Metro Group has forced Microsoft to take such steps.
According to this website (A website for Microsoft worldwide events), Metro UI is now being called the Modern UI. Not really a great name now, is it? This new name doesn’t sound fresh like the name Metro UI did. Microsoft said that Metro was just a code name for the interface and it never intended to use the name in the first place.
Now people are debating over which name would be the best to use for this interface and the confusion that the word ‘Modern’ might bring in when it’s used in the documentation. Until recently, Modern UI was simply called the Windows 8 UI and now it has been changed again. This frequent name-changing business would only make people confused.
