You do make a good point about the "cruft". Consumers usually don't care about all the legacy stuff. However businesses don't want to have to upgrade every application they use. Microsoft is in a tough situation.
Yes, as long as you stay away from legacy apps full Windows 8 is exactly the same tablet optimized interface as Windows RT. And when you use legacy apps on the "Desktop" you just plug in a USB mouse and everything is exactly as on a Windows 7 computer. You get the best of both worlds.
