Microsoft (MSFT) is abandoning the Metro name for the next-gen, tablet-centric user interface that will accompany Windows 8. The company says "discussions with an important European partner" led to the move. A trademark dispute with Germany's Metro AG could be responsible. Also: final copies of Windows 8 have leaked online, just a day after Microsoft announced development was finished. (previous)
