Was not talking about the Metro but the desktop itself. I truly believe that the desktop does not need to go into Metro looking.
I think it does need to go metro or it looks funny switching between the two... consistency is broken. I am replacing all the 'retro' icons with 'metro' icons (where I can) on my server 2012 install. It drives me nuts seeing the old icons in metro look.
They need to get rid of the old icons... kid you not there's windows 98 era icons in there.
It's wierd using office 2013 in windows 7 becuase the visual styling clashes so much.... It would be too much work to get 7 to blend in so I deal with it. I will switch to 2012 full time soon. For now I have it in a VM to play with.

They do look very nice. Your mock-up is leading me to seriously think hard about whether the lack of gradients, shadows etc. in most "Metro" products is really a good approach or not.
I agree becuase for some things it does screwy things with my eyes.... might be too much skooma though... LOL...
