No doubt you've seen that the use of 'Metro' is being dropped for the new Windows 8 interface. I read an interesting article on some alternate names, so I thought we might create a little poll to see what would be popular.

Maybe IISM: iPhone "Inspired" Start Menu????

Anyway, in a Windows 8 box, the very first download will be Classic Shell.

MS can call it anything it wants, but it will forever be known as Metro. Its like a song that you can't stop hearing in your head.
