Windows 8 Modern UI Here To Stay

If you don't like the Windows 8 Modern (formerly "Metro") interface, I have some bad news: it's apparently not going anywhere anytime soon. Although Windows 8 is still quite new, pundits are already talking and speculating about the next version, code-named Windows Blue. Blue's big claim to fame is a yearly release schedule a'la Apple's OS X operating system. The Modern interface has it's roots in the Microsoft Zune music player interface, the X-Box and Windows Phone, so now that Microsoft has established "the look", it seems they are going to stick with it through the next version at least.
