We'll just come right out and say it, Microsoft has some major issues with naming that it needs to sort out. First, the company decided to reuse the name of its tabletop touchscreen (only seen on network news) for its new line of tablets...

that sounds good.. but itthink Metro UI is best... but if they dont like it.. live UI sounds good.. but for me flip UI.. since its campagne ad is "your life is just a flip away" (its the campagne of WP lumia here in the Philippines)

Yoo Microsoft this may seem trivial to you but if you want People to like your Windows "8 Style UI" tiles please round off the corners of the Tiles. People have been found to like to look at rounded off objects more than objects with sharp corners on them. Also it would not hurt to put some artful design in the Windows "8 Style UI" tiles
they look too bland and Blocky. some of the OLD windows Icons look better

They can't. Apple patented rounded corners, remember?
