It could if they make the Metro UI optional so desktop users can turn it off (or better yet not even install it)

The problem is that they probably won't make it optional, since they want you to buy stuff from their metro app store.

The more important question you have to ask yourself is that if you want to have the "old" interface from Windows 7, why do you want to upgrade to W8? Is there really such a huge amount of upgrades and a huge leap ahead from W7 to 8 ? Other then the interface of course.

The've made some under the hood improvements, faster booting, less resources used, better driver support for the latest hardware (as usual), better ways to restore a system that was infected with malware, etc. etc.

Whether that's enough to warrant an upgrade depends on how much more of that under the hood stuff ends up in the final product.

However, there has to be a way to TOTALLY disable metro before I'd consider it.

If enough people bitch... MAYBE they'll listen... but it looks doubtful after this latest consumer build.
