The name change so late in the game was a result of a controversial issue.The real reason they dropped the Metro name for the UI in 8 is to try to fool more people into buying it. That name change so late in the game is idiotic.
Microsoft ran into a little problem last month when they realized that the Metro name was already owned by a store in Germany. The company had been using the Metro branding for over a year to sell Windows 8 and they were suddenly left without an identity. In the interim, Microsoft said developers should just call it the “Windows 8 style UI.” As of today, they have finally decided on a name.
