Why the heck would you expect a service pack to change things? They ALREADY made it more restrictive even after feedback from the beta. For instance, you used to be able to set a registry key to have it boot to desktop mode early in the beta. Then MS decided (AFTER feedback complaining about metro) that they didn't actually want anyone booting to desktop and disabled that registry key, so you were FORCED to boot to metro first when starting the computer.
We will be LUCKY if ms decides to relent a bit on the next windows.
