Metro, it was Microsoft’s name for the live tile UI in Windows 8 and Windows Phones, but now it seems they’re ditching that name. After a slight dispute over the name with a European partner, Microsoft, rather than fighting over the name, has decided to change it.

The new name that Microsoft has come up with is “Windows 8″ according to ZDNet’s Mary Jo Foley’s sources. Microsoft seemed to be going in the right direction with its Metro naming conventions and probably should have gone with something similar, rather than complicating things by incorporating everything under the Windows 8 name.
