I hsve a feeling this will be a way for corporations/education to continue running legacy apps that they are used to, thus allowing MS to do away with the cruft that has weighed Windows down for decades. Most consumers don't really care so long as they can get "flashy new thing". Sure, they may not be able to run their old legacy apps natively, but for a price (the catch), they could.
