Here's the interesting question.

Is it better to lock down user experience using a central software quality assurance and distribution system (allowing an OS developer to enforce rules to keep experiences powered by their OS consistent and easy, but massively hampering homebrew), or allow developers (and by extension marketing people) add whatever they want to software (leaving the market open for innovation, and by necessity, this crap as well)?

Windows 8 represents both experiences, side by side. User adoption will give us the answer.

Personally, I am happy to be part of the experiment.
