I call bullcrap. I've seen absolutely nothing to suggest that M$ is going to back down on the metro interface being the one and only "start" menu for windows from here on in. Either the Staples employee was full of it (and I suspect this because I doubt that a staples has a microsoft rep who'd be passing along that information), or in the case that there actually is a M$ rep, he's a salesman and saying whatever it takes to get product on the shelves.
