Metro style app designs that are starting to excite me!

I’m really starting to like what I’m seeing in metro designs that are leaking. They’re starting to really show me what level of re-imagining Microsoft and partners/developers are making for their apps. More importantly it’s showing me the level of risk people are taking with Metro.

It’s very risky designing your apps for a metro/muti-sensor first world. Exciting times us developers/designers live in.

And I honestly am starting to see possibilities of metro style apps in the business/enterprise world. As long as these apps compliment desktop apps or can exist side-by-side in the desktop that is. I really hope MS shows us the “desktop” story!
