Metro UIs for WPF / Silverlight

Just found an amazing looking gui framework for WPF:
nRoute

The WPF look and feel of the application sample is based of : http://www.nikosbaxevanis.com/bonus-bits/2010/12/building-a-metro-ui-with-wpf.html

Update: the best way with WPF 4 and above to make a custom window chrome would be undoubtedly the WindowChrome class that comes with the Ribbon library / WPF Shell integration library (http://code.msdn.microsoft.com/WPFShell) : http://blogs.msdn.com/b/wpfsdk/archive/2010/08/25/experiments-with-windowchrome.aspx
Expect an update on that in the future :)

There is nothing much that can be said that isn't already present on their website. All I can do is make some application with it ... hmmmm.

Enjoy!
