Are we seeing a move towards metro style UIs for everyone? Lately I am seeing more and more operating systems and UI overlays etc etc moving towards a metro style UI. EX: the new "HTC one" phone with this leaked screenshot at Leaked image shows off black HTC One | Android and Me
Does this seem like companies and consumers like the 2d UI with the live "tiles" or is this just a fad? Also, do you guys think WP8 will eventually be seen by most as superior to android for consumers and manufacturers?

I think everything design-related 'moves' in circles.
For example architecture, over millenia old styles were reused when the current elements got boring. It's exactly the same with fashion. People just get bored after a while, and something new becomes 'in', usually something that was 'in' around 20 years ago.
And similar happens in the computer world: The glossy days were great after all the grey user interfaces on every computer, but now people have seen it. Apple started, then Microsoft followed with Vista, then every Linux distribution started to have glossy elements, it's no wonder nobody wants this anymore. Reduced design is just a new step, and people will get sick of it too.
