At its summit in June, Microsoft revealed that there will be greater color customizations for its Windows Phone 8 release, and it seems that a number of theme colors will be offered via the settings menu.
Earlier this week it was reported that references to “Metro style applications” would become “Windows 8 applications,” and that the “Metro user interface” would be switched to “Windows 8 user interface.”.
Even when everyone else was confused by them, WinRT, Windows RT, Metro style apps, Metro style and Windows 8 all used to make sense, and we could tell you what each of them was:.
At boot, Windows 8 presents a log on screen where the user must enter a Windows ID; at that point, the Start screen appears.
The software giant has used modern, immersive, fast, and fluid to describe its Windows 8 operating system previously — in the early stages of its development — but the common name was always Metro style.
That is how Microsoft internally referred inside to the Metro UI on Windows 8.
In a step that’s bound to confuse developers and consumers, several listings for upcoming events about Windows Azure, Bing Maps, and Windows 8,reference a Modern UI design language and principles, Modern UI Style apps, and even a Modern UI Style UI.
An MSDN blog post, made available this week, also references “Modern UI design.”.
An internal memo revealed that the company was planning to select its Metro branding replacement last week, but the company has not yet officially named the replacement.
We asked Microsoft for comment on whether “Metro” officially is being replaced by “Windows 8″ and have not received a response so far.
