    p.s. There is no "Metro Applications" It's "Modern UI" or "Windows Store" applications... The language is "Modern"!

    The design language is referred to metro internally. Only reason they are trying to back way from metro is because of some company that complained because their name is metro.

    Any changes with .net framework 4.5 version?

    Maybe they will call it 4.5.1

    And hopefully Media Center will still be a part of Blue

    In Internet Explorer I can't add and/or change the search provider (e.g. from "Bing" to "Google").

    Can anyone confirm this?

    Your right but everyone keeps saying Metro including me. :D

    Currently no changes found inside .NET Framework but I'm fully sure there will be as the store applications will offer new opportunities for developers like the half-half split. I'm not going to put in obvious future updates or other speculations so it's not in the list yet. ;)


    Also to these comments above. That 9404 is obvious fake. :p

    Using the addon function it should be possible to add other than bing search engines but it seems to be disabled on 9369 at this moment
