You're living on a completely different plane of existence if you honestly believe that Microsoft will abandon the new interface of Windows 8. Their entire argument for the existence of Windows 8 is based around the new interface! How could they abandon it? If they drop it, they can't release Windows 8, because it would be nothing more than Windows 7.1.
What you (and others like you) will soon discover is what the intelligent and experienced users have been saying for a long time, which is that Windows 8 will be a total and complete flop - something that will make the Vista flop look like a walk in the park by comparison. Microsoft needs to understand that if they want to produce an operating system for tablets, that's fine, produce one FOR tablets. But don't try to take your half-assed tablet operating system and force it onto the desktop and laptop market. Any and all employees that were part of that "brilliant" business decision should be fired en masse.
