Most businesses will not use Windows 8 for one good reason - the Metro interface is too much of a radical change. Administrators must be able to give their users the Start button and hide the Metro interface if needed.
This is clearly an operating system aimed at tablets for consumers with little or no regard to the millions of business users who don't want such a radical design change.
This strikes me as the Windows Millennium Edition debacle, trying to integrate two disparate OSes and failing badly on all counts.
I am constantly accidentally opening IE when on the desktop due to looking for a non-existent Start button!!!
C'mon Microsoft give users what they need - flexibility. If a user wants Metro let them have it, if not, give them back the Start button. Windows 8 might then have a chance.
