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.
