And my hope is if that happens eventually we might get rid of the distinction between Desktop apps and Metro apps, and just have both full screen versions and windowed versions of some apps.

Yes please!

Metro apps being able to be windowed and access to less 'gated' API calls for internal apps (saving files to more locations, some direct SQL/ADO.net calls and some additional stuff etc, and we will replace some of our internal business apps for metro ones. not saying there's anything wrong with current WinRT development for consumer apps, but it would be tricky to make some of our internal apps as productive in current WinRT methodologies.
