"BGR reflects on recent comments by a Metro designer. 'Metro is a content consumption space,' Microsoft UX designer Jacob Miller explains, 'It is designed for casual users who only want to check Facebook, view some photos, and maybe post a selfie to Instagram. It's designed for your computer illiterate little sister, for grandpas who don't know how to use that computer dofangle thingy, and for mom who just wants to look up apple pie recipes. It's simple, clear, and does one thing (and only one thing) relatively easily. That is what Metro is. It is the antithesis of a power user.'"

    >It's easy to see why a unified UI across phones, tablets and PCs could be appealing if you go all-in.

    I understand it is appealing to some markets and not indicative of anything... Personally, I'd like all of my devices to have a different UI every time I rebooted. I'd pay extra money for that.
