“People will either love it or hate it.”
From developer tools to cloud platforms, Windows 8’s Metro UI will take over almost all of Microsoft’s products, reports Softpedia.
The company confirmed in a press conference, a day after the keynote at TechEd EMEA 2012, that the main idea was to bring them in line with Windows 8’s design philosophy. “We love the Metro UI… We’re aiming at providing the same experience across products, including Windows Phone, Windows and Xbox.” said the corporate vice president of Management & Security, Brad Anderson.
Microsoft is looking to provide a fresh, better experience to developers, by redesigning the developers’ tools, aligning them with the visual language of Windows 8. Network administrators and IT managers have been so far impressed by the changes that have been implemented in Windows Server 2012.
While presenting the new capabilities in Windows Azure and Windows Server 2012, some of the UI elements from the Metro were seen. It shows clearly that the UI will not only be found in Windows 8, but in many others.
“People will either love it or hate it,” said Brad Anderson, while noting that at the end, people will have to get used to the change.
