I found this article to be interesting and also relate-able somewhat to our class lectures. JQuery has a lot of features and it is not surprising that Microsoft linked their Metro theme to JQuery. With the way that technology is evolving, I like to see how companies are integrating their existing projects with the new technology and not just quitting on them. Since JQuery is designed to simplify client-side scripting, using JQuery and the Metro theme together has allowed for Microsoft to provide a mobile applications a sophisticated and neatly designed layout. Hopefully this linkage between JQuery and Metro was a good decision and user enjoy the experience of the Metro theme on the Windows Phone.
