Snubbing Apps vs Desktop

In CW World:  It seems most MS WIN 8 users just try to find their way back to the classic desktop, avoiding the 'modern' App tile interface.  Only touch tablet users of Win 8 find much use for Apps.  I had to quickly learn both interfaces on my non-touch laptop, and the way to get from one to another, but find myself most often on the desktop.  In talking to several relatively non technical professional people who have moved to 8, they appear to have general contempt for the dual-mode aspect.  I saw the earliest versions of Widows desktops demonstrated at Microsoft, and it seems that no one is ready to cast it aside.  While the App interface works fine on tablets or  phones.  Sounds like a fail.
