Yeah! They will release it today. Although slowly they will rip out Metro UI code from their trunk (nightly branch) and I probably think they will do this after ESR checkpoint reached.

It's already out in the wild if you know where to look.

You don't even need to look. Was auto updated to 28 a few hours ago.

so is metro available in 28? I found it rather weird that they used the low usage numbers to justify killing it off when they haven't even released it to general distribution yet.

I'd imagine that a decently large amount of people use the beta channel, and if they still saw those tiny usage numbers when it hit beta then it was becoming clear that it was going to be a barely used feature.

No Metro - it's probably dead (for the time being, anyways). :p
