Customising Windows 8 Metro tiles for groups of users
I'm just having a play around with Windows 8 and actually quite like the idea of using the Metro UI rather than the classic start menu approach.
One idea I've had is to create 3 separate Metro Tile interfaces - 1 for students, 1 for teachers and 1 for administrators. I was just wondering whether anyone else has managed to do this, or whether its even possible?

Knowing MS there'll be no GPO control and we'll have a wait on someone from TechNet forums kludging up a script to fix it (ref: pinning programs in Windows 7)

Locally the metro tiles are just the same as start menu just shortcuts in the user profile so in theory redirected start menu policy may work

Nope, that would make sense wouldn't it :P It ignores that GPO setting.

The last time MS half arsed this bad, the OS was called Vista.
