Hi Rob, I completely agree with the post you linked, I love how metro works on mobile but after using it (win8) on PC for a couple of months I moved straight back to linux, its a great mobile/tablet os but for me not so much for everyday desktoping

The consistent experience across different platforms with a single app I think is the future of mobile apps. I agree that system interactions should stay native-like.

I find it stranger that apps like Facebook and Twitter completely remove the feel that users are used to (particularly in windows os) and adhere to native standards, but then that's probably a story in itself :)

I agree, but I wonder sometimes if an app really needs to feel like the os, with certain apps I'm sure this would be preferred like with tools and such, but with apps that provide data similar to web apps I wonder if a single feel across all platforms might be as comforting.
