I love the Metro UI. Wont use it on the desktop, but hopefully it will be functional with the WMC remote and make one hell of a HTPC interface.

This implies that Microsoft may be moving away from the range of SKUs it offered with XP, Vista and Windows 7 in favour of shipping one single version of its OS, which users can then customize by unlocking features via the Windows app store.
Interesting idea. Cheaper for them to make and do I suppose.

Interesting thought and idea. I can't help but wonder if that will indeed happen. However, you have to recall Win8 appears to be in a position where it will be used everywhere, including computers, etc., and computers themselves. App store just maybe a new app so people with phones can get apps just like apple's users do.
