Which is already not very much, and mostly by way of hoping they give the bloke a lot more rope with which to hang himself and the company.

I notice in the list of failures is "overpaid for Skype". Naa, that was a NSA scripted pay-off to convert Skype to a wire-tappable architecture.

The comments are also pretty good, especially about the idea that "Metro" GUI would not conflict with "Metro" the department store.

Oh well, truly, it would be possible to care less, but not likely.

Meh. This kind of thing happens all the time. Maybe they'll reach an agreement with Metro AG and maybe they'll rename it. With that and $3 I can get a cup of burned coffee at Starbucks.
