I think there should have been a choice right back to the launch of win8 allowing users to retain the "classical" user interface. I don't mean a shell to make the system look like win 2k, but an evolution of the start menu.
Users are used to things working in a certain way. I think of it as "toys and tools" there is no real reason to try and make a pc look and feel like the same ui from a smart phone or tablet.
Both serve very different purposes. Each has its own unique benefits and the UI should exploit these.
