Of course, when I look at a lot of the users out there who buy something for home use, a lot of the times they'll get their device home and use what comes with it but again, going back to the linux netbook example, those didn't sell too well and that incompatiblity I'm sure was the primary reason. Microsoft I think should have done more with the Windows brand to drive home the difference unless they're planning on reducing that difference in the future. I have this hope that once the libraries for desktop development are polished, that the Windows Store will open up desktop development even if the Windows Store is the only deployment avenue. Perhaps in Windows 9 this will happen and while that won't fix the situation and allow the user to install their copy of Office XP, maybe it'll ease the pain a bit when updated version's of their desktop software are available on the Store.
