Some of the costs aren't just gradient values, some are very binary, the second cost line is a straight up show stopper for business applications. Fisher Price UIs may have a place but it is not the LOB application arena.
 
As for minimalistic UI, I'm disgusted with the change from Silverlight to MVC imagine if I had to cut off yet another limb!
 
So from the guy who spent the last 5 years building apps in YADMP (Yet Another Dead Microsoft Product), go for it, spend months getting your head around another paradigm, build your tolls to help your development, invest your time, effort and money into this WinRT environment.
 
BUT be prepared to throw the f***ing lot away AGAIN. I am so pissed with Microsoft if they did not have such a strangle hold on the LOB environment I would seriously consider a change.
Never underestimate the power of human stupidity
