Yes. They are trying to ram Metro down their desktop users' throats. Big mistake. Vista is an apt comparison, as it was trying to ram UAC and a major device driver change down users' throats.. and it wasn't too successful at it. We had to wait till Windows 7 before users accepted those changes. Fortunately for Vista, it was at least useable without significant user retraining, which isn't the case for Windows 8.
We can program with only 1's, but if all you've got are zeros, you've got nothing.
