This is what I was thinking to. I think it will be mass confusion for most people who have used Windows in the past. Were not talking about new users here. All of a sudden people are brought to this screen with a bunch of tiles that are meaningless to them instead of a desktop with a start menu.
Maybe his friend is technically inclined so he was able to adapt quickly, but I don't see businesses, schools, and even some consumers liking this OS. Of course there will be something that disables Metro. If Microsoft doesn't make it, someone else will. As a person who works in IT in a school I don't see this working very well.
If they want to make a touch version of their OS then make a separate version. Windows sucks on a mobile device...always has, always will. I don't know why they'd want to make Windows work on a mobile device. This is what killed them the first time.

I'm sure Apple management would even give his some Apple stock if he would promise to stay at the top of the dog pile at MS.
Why are we afraid of Microsoft? It seems as if we think they're going to retake everything is someone else comes in. Competition is always good. Apple needs it. If not, then they'll start to lay down on us and products will go stale.
