    They released a beta update of the console UI that looks like Metro.

    officially "Metrofied" at usable beta stage. It was announced (officially "Metrofied") long ago Tongue Out.

    Not sure how they are going to add more tiles, The current GUI just make the channel list longer, but, a page on next GUI only has 8 tiles max or something. I don't think they want to support scroll in the next GUI, due to Kinect. It can support scroll, but, their approach is trying to avoid scrolling.

    Leaving WM on 5/2018 if no apps, no dedicated billboards where I drive, no Store name.

    I was, but I had to sign up again. It wasn't automatic. However, I don't think there was any kind of approval process either.

    Well, it was "officially" applied to my console by XBL. I suppose I could have "unofficially" applied the update to my console, if I had the knowledge (and the desire) to do so. Smiley

    Be careful, I think this is still under NDA isn't it?

    Yes, I'm being careful not to reveal any details. As magicalclick has mentioned, the Metrofication of the console dashboard UI is public information. However, I did talk about the sign-up process. Oops! Is that under NDA? Expressionless

    not likely....   a while back major nelson told anyone who saw the post where to signup to get in.

    but by the time i saw it they had closed it saying they had all the beta users theyn needed at that time.

    so i think that the connect beta page is well known.

    i guess in about 2 weeks we will not need the beta as i hear it will soon be released.

    @cbae:

    Well, does the beta look anything close to the official publications? Tongue Out
