If you have ever wondered what Metro UI is, as I have, you would have found that Google does not come up with the definition that we where looking for.
the second one shows a customized version with HDWalls, an application developed by a forum member. You clearly see that the second one gets rid all those clock panels, appointment backgrounds and slider bars, which is exactly the key philosophy behind Metro – the chromeless look.
Especially when compared to the iPhone or Android, the benefits of this design become obvious. It focuses much more on the actual content, the text, instead of buttons or toolbars, and simply looks incredibly elegant.
I hope this helps all those wondering exactly what Microsoft is up to with the Metro thing.
Do you want the content to shine or the menu’s and buttons?
