It's continuing the pattern of all things Microsoft related having namesakes that mean nothing to the consumer. Or are just plain terrible.
Surface RT - What does this mean? What does "RT" signify to the consumer? NOTHING!
Windows RT - ditto, read above. So since it's a "Windows" OS, it can run my programs right? Oh wait...it can't? So umm why is it called Windows again?
Metro - Just...huh? Unless it's short for Metrosexual...
Windows Phone 8 - Wow, the marketing department really swung for the fences here, didn't they?
