    I was just wondering if the site is due for a makeover soon, perhaps a Metro Makeover to match with the whole Windows ecosystem.

    It's at times like this, when I start becoming giggly over a website makeover, that I really do feel like I need to venture out the front door more. Nah :D

    I thought we weren't supposed to use the term "metro" any more

    So, they are going to Windows 8-style" the site!

    I still can't believe how any one can trademark the word Metro.

    Hopefully MS comes up with something else to replace it. Windows 8 Style UI doesn't quite have the same ring to it.

    I know it's not good to rush things, but any estimate now on when the site will get a remake? I'm really looking forward to a fresher and cleaner website UI. Let's get the love with WP8 on the horizon.

    Keep up your great work!

    There are some interesting ideas in there Danny. If a Windows 8 app comes to fruition I may use a couple of them assuming I have your permission?

    that's true of the current design. In fact the very first WPCentral app concept was using these colours over the current background.


    But things are going to change

    No need for a teaser, teasers are for when things are a while away
