Windows 8 die-hards waiting on Mozilla's Metro Firefox update will have to wait a little longer: the company says it won't be ready until next year. According to a recently published archive of meeting notes, the final public release of the Windows 8 interface won't be available until January 21, 2014. The document is filled with meeting jargon and completion numerics, but the notes do pin the delay a "decrease in average team velocity" across previous iterations. A bummer, perhaps, for folks waiting for a stable build, but at least you can still get your fix through Firefox nighties, right?

Very interesting. The first time in history when software actually gets less complex we're experiencing the most mishaps and delays from every party imaginable.

Hilarious. I know I am trolling but do Mozilla developers have a hard time drawing squares and filling them with info? That's all what Modern UI is all about. 


Vast expanse of beautiful square/rectangle tiles.
