Microsoft has started to notify its Windows developers that they should refrain from using the word "Metro" throughout their applications if they refer to the Windows Phone or Windows 8 interface. The change could be related to a dispute between Microsoft and a German company over the use of the Metro naming. The Windows team is working on a replacement term and plans to land on that by the end of this week. Until then, employees have been advised to refer to the Metro style user interface as the "Windows 8 style UI."
