That's the real kicker....

Imagine if they'd left the desktop as it currently is under win7, but had the metro interface available for folks who wanted to use win8 on a touch screen enabled device..... They'd be getting strong positive reviews on the improvements they've made, along with major Kudos as to how well they managed to incorporate the touch screen features for tablets.

They could have had a major win rather than seeing just about every legit tech source give the OS thumbs down based on them forcing Metro to the forefront.
