Metro User Interface in Windows RT


In Microsoft Windows, “Metro” is a new UI or user interface from Microsoft that replaces the native look and feel of the operating system. The Metro UI consists hugely of a “Start Screen” that’s made up of “Live Tiles”. The Live Tiles are dynamic with continually updated links to programs and features. The Metro design was introduced in the Windows 7 Phone operating system.

It is designed to be a predominately touch-based interface that will work across a huge variety of devices like Smartphones, tablets, laptops, and desktop computers. The Metro UI is also expected to be the default interface when Microsoft Windows 8 was released.
