Sounds like we have a choice each purchase or a developer has a choice when they design their apps? Do I want this Metro App? Do I want to design this in Metro and deal with MS or traditional and keep things the same as they ever was?

If it was "only metro apps work in 8 and all apps go through MS", then I would completely laugh Win 8 off and Balmer has to go worse than the gnome at USPS. We could be approaching that... Balmer should have been gone a long time ago with the companies performance.
We only have a choice as long as MS lets us have a choice. They could well decide for windows 9 that we had enough of a transition period and not offer traditional desktop mode anymore, and force everyone to use metro. They've done more heinous things in the past.

They are already trying to force everyone to use their OS rather than any alternatives, with BIOS lockout of any non secured OS (aka non-windows). Perhaps they are afraid of people jumping ship to linux because of what they are are trying to do with windows 8 and want to make sure its not possible for the majority of people buying a storebought computer because of the BIOS lockouts?

It's possible but I'm not a person that always throws out the slipper slope card at any chance. We'll see. Yes the bios situation is underhanded and expect that one to end up in court.
