The Metro style works particularly well with new tablet and touch-screen devices. Windows 8 features such as user log in with tap and trace gestures, and accessing the new charms menu with a swipe are just a couple of the ways in which Microsoft uses the Metro UI to work well with new hardware as well as hardware users already own. - Metro user interface
