“Microsoft will be this year the first company on the planet to have a consistent UI from the smart phone to the tablet to the slate, to the reader to the rich client and to the TV with our Metro UI,” he said. “We know the power of getting that consistent user experience is something our whole product portfolio will benefit from.”
And why is this a good idea?
I dont use a TV like a phone, laptop, or Ereader, and vise vera in all directions, any more than I use a hammer like a screwdriver.
When will MS finaly realse that different tools for different jobs need to have different experiences, and a common UI is not always a good thing.
Sadly, I fear its not going to be after launch.... the Maroons.
