Will there be Desktop and Tablet versions of the new apps?

6

A while ago there was someone at Microsoft that mentioned that the goal of the Windows (Metro) apps is to replace the legacy apps down the road. I guess I'm wondering because of that comment will there be a Desktop and Tablet version of the same Windows (Metro) app? Like Spartan, it seems like the caption buttons being part of the title/tab bar make it seem like more of a desktop program. It feels like this would be a great way to encourage interest in the app store as well as the universal appeal.
