I'm a bit concerned about the tags on Stack Overflow. I think that the tag should be merged to , and in fact, should be the master.

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.


Considering that has ~2000 questions, and 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 , and leave a note telling about the switch.

    Agreed it should be metro-ui. The change was made for BS legal reasons that don't concern anyone but MS. Metro is recognizable – Ben Brocka Feb 18 '13 at 18:40
  • @BenBrocka: Exactly! Thanks. – Linuxios Feb 18 '13 at 18:44
  • "Modern-UI" is going to become ambiguous when Windows 9 appears. – Dour High Arch Feb 18 '13 at 22:00
  • @DourHighArch: That too. – Linuxios Feb 18 '13 at 23:32
