    I am an 8 purist but wouldn't say that. I don't care if they put the option in. I would not use it.
    If there was a boot to desktop option, I would not enable that either.

    There is no chance (WinRT) metro will be eliminated.

    I'd consider myself a Windows 8 "purist" as well, and I personally think it was a huge mistake to leave the Start menu out. Not that I'll use it, but it should have been an option for everyone who didn't want the Metro UI. I hope they bring it back for those that want it. Microsoft needs to offer all the options they can.

    I would be surprised if they made Aero transparency available again.

    There is problem with battery life.

    If they make transparency available on laptop/desktops - then tablet users get a second class experience.

    Uh oh - the answer is to remove it from both.

    Interesting to see the obsessive 8 supporters positioning themselves, just in case the start menu is returned.

    LOL.

    Well, there is many third party windows 8 aero themes on deviantart site in example, so go there and download what you like. BTW, windows 8.1 or blue, will be released as new os and there will be no updates in "windows updater", right ?

    There is a tendency to unify the interfaces, for example Chrome has this in mind as well (see the recent menu list spacing).
    Touch will look like the desktops because the desktops will all look like touch.

    Why I think those guys from AMD made the statement that DirectX 12 wouldn't be made anymore:
    You know where this is leading? If your tablet isn't able to run DX11/12 then your desktop wouldn't run that either: not because it's not capable but because they don't implement that since is not needed on the table interface.
    Sounds absurd to me as well.

    Now let's hope I wrong with the three lines above.

    That's funny. A start menu button orb would be a step backward to help those who cannot find the off switch.

    Well, desktop pcs doesnt bring enough money, even apple for a few years now is concentrating on small tablets (known as phones) and tablets and has almost abandoned desktop macs, so others are trying to do that too. Tablets+phones market is pretty fresh compared to personal computers, and everyone wants a piece of billions of billions of money that is traveling through this market, and everyone wants to make as biggest impact to it as they can, like patents wars, or like microsofts patents, that gets them billions from android without moving a finger

    Hopefully this is true, but until its (Blue) released, itís all speculation....

    It's not 100 percent sure that either/both of these options will be baked into the final Blue release, which is expected to be released to manufacturing on or around August 2013. I guess we'll have a better indication once the next milestone build, a.k.a. the Blue Preview, leaks ó or when the public version of that preview goes live around June.
