    @JoshRoss: I could use JavaScript to open up a new browser with no buttons in it. At least that's the old folks did it with ads. I am not sure what you mean by using a flag to enable an app space. Because from the look of it, metro apps are run at higher security privilege than internet browser with access to many Windows API.

    Which Windows APIs do you miss not having on your websites? Anything you can do with File IO, I can do with cloud storage, any of WinRT/JS's high-res graphics and JS objects can be done with SL/Flash/HTML5/jQuery/WebGL.

    Pretty much the only thing I can think of that WinRT/JS gives you that a website doesn't is a permanant prescence on your customer's home screen via a live tile.
