A new user interface from Microsoft that replaces the traditional Microsoft Windows operating system look and feel. The Metro UI consists largely of a "Start Screen" made up of "Live Tiles," which are dynamic and continually updated links to applications and features.

Metro is also expected to be the default interface in the upcoming Windows 8 release.
