Seems to hold a similar opinion to a lot of journalists with respect to Win8: "really two user interfaces crudely grafted together". Personally I find the integration to be elegant. On a PC, a swipe of the mouse and a click on the charm, or a tap of the Windows key to switch UIs. Hard to beat a single keystroke for utility and simplicity.
