The two of them had to work every night for two weeks to learn how to use metro.

Two weeks to learn to press the Windows key + D key? Wow. Yeah, they're ready for Linux.

I'm sure he meant "finding what they needed because they were used to doing it another way."

Two Weeks to learn the Charms shortcut? Other than that, there isn't two weeks of changes to learn if you're using your existing apps on Win8. You don't HAVE to use metro for anything. The UI changes for trivial stuff take about 10 minutes to learn. You can dismiss the Metro (hey, it's a really big start menu) screen and live in the desktop if you want. Other than bugfixes, the OS isn't any different than 7 >= Visa >= NT.
