"Getting Rid of the Desktop" on RT Probably Not as Hard As You Might Think

I was messing around on my desktop today. I was in the Control Panel and accidentally hit F11 which made my Explorer window go into fullscreen mode. Suddenly, it occurred to me. Why not get rid of the actual desktop and launch Explorer as a full screen app. Make the small targets about 20% bigger and keep the address bar pinned and you have a very powerful, familiar "metro" file explorer.

They could do the same with Office too, I suppose.

The main problem here is the autohiding Address Bar. Can that be pinned?
