Microsoft names Windows 8 UI as Modern UI

There has been splashing around by Microsoft and it has now named Windows 8 UI as Modern UI. The Windows 8 and its touch-centric user interface has not been one constant entity in any one way. The same UI was initially named Metro. It looks that Microsoft has used the third name for their UI and now seems happy with Modern UI.
The word Metro has been replaced with Modern UI according to the documentation of the company. The explanation given by the company suggests that the word ‘Metro’ was just used as a code. This code was used by the developers in the developing stage. It was never going to be a word used for the general public, the company added.
However, there is something more than just the explanation given by Microsoft. Actually, the name had to be changed due to a naming row. Microsoft has a partner in Europe called Metro Group. This Windows 8 UI has been designed for using the mobile phones, touchscreens and tablets.
