Many thanks to everyone, I have made a decision based on all your good advice.

I will learn to use Windows 8 as Microsoft intended and only then include the desktop mode.

I may be misunderstanding, but using nothing but metro apps is not the way it is intended to be used. The desktop is still very much a part of the OS, there are just other aspects available.

Yeah, because who would want to learn one UI when he can learn two!


It's all one UI, there are just a few more possibilities available now.

No it's not. There are two distinct interfaces with different rules. The old one is grafted onto the new. Almost like an afterthought. "Say bubba, don't you think people are going to want to run all the old software they already own?" "Golly, I didn't think of that! We better include a way for them to run it..."
