Microsoft’s Metro UI renamed Windows 8 UI
| by Ramkumar Iyer |
Microsoft is going to drop the Metro in its Windows 8 operating system. No, wait, the Redmond-based giant is not dropping the weird, more-suited-to-touchscreens-than-computers interface; just the name. The UI, apps, and everything else to do with Metro will now be simply known as 'Windows 8'. Not quite inventive, we know.
Now to be formally known as the Windows 8 UI
We think Microsoft should simply have gone ahead and done something to retain the Metro moniker for its UI. Or it should at least have come up with a better, more distinguishable name than simply 'Windows 8'. This new name, we believe, could be quite confusing for both users and developers alike. If we were to have a new version of a programme, say VLC Media Player, for both Windows platforms, would the names of the two versions be, 'VLC Windows 8 app' and 'VLC Windows 8 desktop app'? Imagine the confusion such a naming system would create for uninitiated users.
