I do not have any privileges to do this (neither has ANYONE, the synonym needs five upvotes in the topic. The maximum any person has is one). I think this should be done because Metro has gone out of favour with MS, due to the Metro AG issues, and they have renamed it to Modern. I think Stack Overflow should reflect this as well.

This question appears to be off-topic. The users who voted to close gave this specific reason:
Considering that metro-ui has ~2000 questions, and modern-ui has 2, I think the community has already decided. Anyway, whatever MSFT wants to name it, modern-ui is very ambiguous. It could just mean designing something in a modern way, or updating Windows 2000 software to a later design metaphor. If we're going to switch, at least make it microsoft-modern-ui, and leave a note telling about the switch.
