Microsoft has been granted patent for the Metro User Interface by the US Patent and Trademark Office. This patent was filed under the name 'Visual motion for user interface feedback'.
Microsoft has been working to implement the Metro UI into Windows 8 and Xbox 360 in order to create a similar and synergised user experience between three platforms — Mobile, Tablets, Computer and Gaming Console. That is exactly what its rival Apple has been trying to achieve with the release of Mac OS X Lion and iOS 5 update.
