Is it time to bid the traditional Desktop UI for PC operating systems goodbye?

Survey period: 28 Oct 2013 to 4 Nov 2013

Microsoft sees the non-desktop "Metro" UI as the future of Windows. Is this the direction the industry must take, or a mis-fire?

Until there's a metro app that's more than a web scrape then the UI is still questionable.

Where's the utility or creation apps? The CD/DVD burners, mp3 rippers, photo/movie editors, text editors?

Even with VS2013 the templates are really only variations of the same theme, take some other data and display it.

Same for iOS v OSx, though there its more understandable as Apple have never tried to make iOS do something it cant.
