    @bondsbw: I was talking more of a bridge between the two, leaving the restrictions on each environment in place. If the metro world is meant to be more for consumption, then I would like the apps to summarize or capture the content I was working with in desktop land. And then when I want to drill into the content  more, make changes, etc...then I want to instantly warp myself into desktop land to do so. It's basic data visualization....summarize, browse, drill down for detail (or to make edits).


    I can see Visual Studio having a metro app that is basically a frontend to TFS where I could view all my projects, work items, team discussions, nightly builds. Looks like I need to fix something...tap the relevant source file...Visual Studio opens up in desktop mode with the project/file open for me. I dock my tablet so that I can work on the file.
