Microsoft No Longer Using The 'Metro' Name For Its New Interface

Microsoft notified developers this week to stop using the "Metro" as the name for the new Windows 8 and Windows Phone interface. Apparently, a German company called Metro AG disputed Microsoft's use of the term, although Microsoft has not confirmed this as the reason for the change.

Microsoft has only said that for now, developers should use the term "New User Interface" or "Windows 8-Style UI" to describe the tiled look; an internal memo states that they'll be renaming the interface very soon. [The Verge]
