Beamer I wish it were that simple; I've been using the "preview" and you'll get dumped into Metro at various points using the "classic desktop" and it is annoying.

And you cant put document shortcuts on metro, which will surely annoy many. App shortcuts yes. Docs no.

All you can really do is learn the new keyboard shortcuts since anything else will slow you down.

I had heard they were fixing the document issue.

I do agree with everyone saying that it's way premature to combine two form factor OSs, especially bringing one down to the other, but I don't think this is the disaster people make it out to be. I think it's worth no more than $15, if that, so clearly I'm not high on it, I'm just not joining the "hee hee hee BALLMER!" group.
