    I don't know why you wouldn't have expected something like this from Microsoft. They led the way on a lot of design trends that were later implemented by Apple and Google.

      And that’s a good thing. Can you name a few?

        Sure at a time when itunes looked like a file folder the zune app was using big images and typography to enhance discoverability. The zune desktop client from 2010 or so still looks better than current itunes(not a high bar, I know)

        The Metro design language signaled a shift toward flat design well before iOS and Android.

        iOS7's flat UI took quite a few design cues from Windows Phone
