The newly-updated Metro-style desktop app for the Microsoft All-In-One Code Framework <http://1code.codeplex.com/>. It allows you to browse, download, and submit new requests for a variety of common (practical) programming tasks.
Well Metro at its core is just set of design guidelines. It's not a software technology or library per se. Windows 8 will just include a more "official" sort of metro support.
The app itself seems to be WPF/.NET, yeah. It's supply .NET samples, so I'd hope so!
In any case, this app is just as much Metro as Zune (for desktop) or any of the current WP7 apps. It's just a shame Microsoft haven't released any WPF themes for Metro yet... it will probably all come officially with WinRT/Win8.
I'd like to think it's just hype... but with the recent Windows 8 demo it looks like it's going to be a major future part of desktop Windows as well as WP7 (unfortunately in my view). It does have the look of a fad to me though...at least on the desktop.
