    Yes, friend. Everything regarding Metro UI for Windows 8 is ready. Recently they have involved many themes for this Metro UI. They have added Shortcuts which are Tricky but useful.

    The app Screen for Windows 8 has been redesigned as below. It is the latest app Screen for Windows 8.

    Hello,
    Yes the final changes in the Metro UI of the windows 8 have been done.
    There are a few changes which are seen
    .
    • All Windows 7 applications will run natively on Windows 8
    • Security update notifications have been minimized to the lower right of the log-in screen
    • Refreshed Windows Task Manager suspends apps when they're not running on-screen
    • New "Reset and Refresh PC" functions enable simplified system wipe and restore
    • HyperV virtualization software comes pre-loaded on Windows 8
    • Multi-monitor support now enables a single background across screens, as well as monitor-specific task bars
    • Multi-touch support enabled for Internet Explorer 10
    • Magnifier function enhanced for desktop manipulation
    • Optional thumb-by-thumb input mode
    • SkyDrive storage support integrated into all cloud-based apps
    • Metro-style refresh for Mail, Photos, Calendar and People apps with Windows Live ID
    • Settings roam allows for preferences to sync across a user's Windows 8 devices
    • Continued update support for Windows 8 Developer Preview Beta
    • Even a Lenovo S10 (first-gen Atom + 1GB of RAM) can "run" Windows 8
    • There's "no overlays" with Windows 8; Metro-style goodness is baked into the core
    • Both Metro-style and conventional Win32 apps will be sold in the Windows Store
    • Windows 8 devices equipped with an NFC chip will be able to use a tap-to-share feature to either send content from one device to another, or simply receive content from something like an NFC-equipped card.
    • Logins will use a photo-based system
    • Apps will be able to natively connect and understand one another (if written as such)
    • Built-in antivirus software will ship in Windows 8
    • There will not be a different edition of Windows 8 for tablets, and presumably, not for Media Centers either
    • It's unclear how many "editions" (Home, Professional, Ultimate, etc.) of Windows 8 there will be
    • ARM devices will be supported, but not in the developer preview
    All the best
    -Abhishek
