    For fun: "Name that product"

    Rumors are flying that Microsoft is going to stop using the Metro name. For fun, what new name would you give as a replacement?

    Brad!

    ( Yes: This thread is a bit on the side of Chit Chat. This being the Metro forum, I thought it worth posting here. Besides, the admin said I could! )

    It is "Urban" spelled backwards, but no idea why I came up with it at the time! :-)

    Apollo is a codename for a Windows Phone OS release. Since Metro goes beyond just the phone, this would likely be a consfusing name to use!

    Of course, it would be more engaging than "Windows Store App" (versus Metro App).

    I kinda like Metro though the multilingual photo thing should help alot of people still scared of the computer to learn to navigate it.

    Indeed, it seems that Metro Apps are now called "Windows Store apps", notice the small "a" in "apps".
    Personally, I liked "Metro" much better; it was more catchy. "Windows Store apps" sounds a bit ... boring ...

    I'd call it Retro since it wouldn't look out of place in a 60's sci-fi film.
