KDE developer Kai Uwe has written a blog post how he's working on a KDE Plasma setup to resemble Microsoft's Windows 8 "Metro" interface.

Kai Uwe has been working on some experimental hacks to resemble Windows 8, although Microsoft's default interface has changed with Windows 10. He's calling this work "U-Bahn" (the German equivalent of a Metro subsystem system) in reference to Microsoft at the time calling it Metro. This was just some brief hacking and he's not planning to see this U-Bahn project through to the end.

Separately for post KDE Plasma 5.5 development he's also working on Desktop Actions / Jump Lists, better Plamoid installs, and more. More details via this blog post.
