    Apparently they are planning on using the code as the basis of the Windows9 UI and are confident it will be a major improvement on Metro.

    We may not care because we were there playing games while this was happening. People that wasnt there may care as its part of Video game history and Folklore.

    Yeah it is a waste but they will make money on doing it somehow. Still would be nice to see pictures of a real confirmation.
