    I don't want to go back to the days of Windows for Pen Computing with the desktop as the centerpiece for those devices.

    Judging by what they've announced so far, that's exactly what you're going to get though. It's pretty obvious at this point that the experience for convertible devices is going to be so thoroughly hobbled by the slavish devotion to the Windows 95 user interface that you have to wonder why they just don't dump the concept entirely and just continue Windows 8 (with the desktop entirely stripped out) for tablets and then just permanently ship the Windows 7 UI atop the current kernel for desktop systems.
