Yesterday we got some bad news about the name that has represented the “New Microsoft” image. We’re talking about “Metro,” the name that has been used to describe the Windows Phone design, Windows 8 Start Screen layer, and pretty much every new app that has been made for Windows recently. That name is being changed next week because of some copyright issues.
Until we get a new name Microsoft has instructed people to use the term “new user interface.” Frankly, that’s not going to cut it, and I think we can come up with something better. So let’s hear those name ideas! What do you think the name of the authentically digital design of Microsoft products should be?
Here’s my idea: Minimized
Microsoft has “Minimized Windows.” Like how you minimize a window in the OS. Get it?
