Microsoft will be using the Metro design language in Windows 8 in at least one theme, if not more.

This theme is expected to be used by users whose computers do not have the specs to run a dynamic interface. Microsoft knows that Windows 8 will be used on older hardware and wants to maintain its Metro design language across all themes that end users might use. It is not known at this time if there will be the 'classic' option theme in Windows 8.
