Well, it was just a matter of time before 3rd party developers come up with a way to mimic the ZuneHD/Windows Phone 7 start menu on Android--actually, we're kind of shocked it took this long.
'Zune Home Launcher' is not a bad beginning, though we'd argue it misses the best part of 'Metro': the dynamic start tiles. In fact, the "list as a Start menu" thing is probably the weakest part of Metro at this point (we're not looking to endless scrolling, something already common on Android).
With rumors that Android 3.0 is going to get a much needed UI overhaul, we're curious as to where all of this is going for our closest competitor.
