I know windows 8 is very new but I cant seem to find anything on making the metro desktop the same for all users. Kind of like the public folder " desktop"  to where you can put the program you want or links on the desktop for all users. We have different users logging onto the pc. Ideas?

This can maybe be of help:
Predefining and customizing the Modern UI Start Screen on RDS 2012

It explains how to do it on a Terminal Server, but it may point in the right direction.
