I had to do a bing search on ymmv.
What does it mean?
"Your mileage may vary"
"Your mother's mini van"
"Your market may vary"
I don't know?
I can see people getting annoyed.
But then most are not even aware of this feature...
I understand completely that people are used to a start menu and that it works better for them.
I know that the taskbar is a better option for most.
My interest is totally in using something different.
I understand most like to stay on the desktop to work, but I like this new stuff!

Figured that much but still would not place any bets on Start Menu return.
I don't like the Metro Version of IE so I use the desktop version. I use POP3 for e-mail and thus use Outlook. That puts me on the desktop for most of what I do. On the Metro side about all I use their is the Weather App, Slacker Radio and Netflix. I have three monitor setup so Metro Apps run on one monitor, IE on my main screen and Outlook on the third. I have Metro and Desktop running side by side.
Others disagree with me, but I think the start screen is a desktop shell for launching pinned desktop programs (or anything else), and the apps area is the Windows 8 start menu that does all the organizing automatically like a menu. That is why I don't use groups on the start screen. I posted about this way back, but recreating the apps area on the start screen seems to me a waste of time. Would anyone recreate their desktop start menu on the desktop. I suppose those that like dozens of desktop icons plastered on their wallpaper would do that! There are customization tools for creating titled icon groups for the desktop.
The metro UI is a bridge between WinRT and Win32 and an executable platform for both.
For most apparently, the metro UI is simply too different.
They say it works on a small screen but does not work on a larger screen non touch PC.
I will never agree with this. I must argue against the contenders that insist it has no place on a desktop PC. Or that it was not designed for the desktop. It absolutely is! The mouse and keyboard work beautifully with tifkam. I could post videos of how effortless everything works, but I think most are used to a classic shell or Windows 7 style menu and have no interest in anything else.
I get offended by critics that say it is $%^&.
Sorry. I like this.

The leaks next month and in March will more accurately show what will included feature wise. I know pretty sure that the digital assistant from Windows Phone 8.1 (that will be released sometime April) will be added onto Windows 8.1 and Xbox One.
Coke, what does that do ? Is that a must have.
