Three New Apps in the Windows 8 Release Preview

Windows 8 Release Preview will include three new Metro apps according to winunleaked. Paul Thurrott also confirmed the existence of the new apps. The three new Metro-style apps that Microsoft is providing in this release include News, Sports, and Travel. They look and work exactly like the Finance app, providing what are essentially beautiful frontends to RSS feeds from trusted sources.

If you only care about the classic desktop, you frankly shouldn't be upgrading to Windows 8.
I have only 1 question.
Who will care about metro apps on classic Desktop?
And why is that? Windows 8 is more than Metro slapped on top of Windows 7. I've been using it now since the Dev Preview, and the enhanced boot speed alone is enough for me to want to continue using it and not go back to 7. 99% of the time, I don't even use the start screen (I use True Launch Bar to replace what little I used the start menu in 7 for).
