Windows I'm swamped with real-world work at the moment, so you'll have to settle for this quickie: the consumer preview for Windows 8 has been released. Go get it and report in what you find!

I think the UI change is staying.... Linux will be the only desktop OS that has a UI that can be referred to as classic WIMP. OS X is doing what Windows has done.

Yeah, unfortunately I think you're right. MS has developed this apple-esque "Our Way or the Highway" attitude, as of late. Which I wouldn't really have a problem with, except for the fact that they're forcing some really ass-backward, god awful designs on the public.

But seriously, if MS wants this thing to go anywhere in the corporate IT world, it sure as hell better allow the disabling of Metro, and a return to the orb and start menu.
