    Can the lock screen be kept as it is in WP8 I don't like what I see here
    Well considering that this is a lock screen app, I would say yes. Just don't use it.

    I think it's great that MS recognize Rudy as a star developer. The even mention his name and collaborate with him on the lockscreen to show off on stage

    My thoughts exactly. I love Rudy and all the work he's done for Windows Phone, but these lockscreens look like too much. Like a weird hybrid between Metro and Android (iOS 7?). It's not simple and clean. I chose Metro because I appreciate the fact that it's not trying to do too much, that it's not trying to be purposefully flashy. It's flashy, yes, but in a far more subtle way.

    Thankfully, these lock screens are apparently only available via an app download, to help showcase what developers can do with the new lockscreen API. Translation: they're optional. Don't like them? Then just don't download them, problem solved.
    I think the lock screens they showed are more a tech demo whats possible. I think there will be some less flashy ones

    It has the potential, along with the open API, to do ANYTHING.

    Indeed. Once the API is opened to all developers, a bunch of new creations are to be made. I'd like to see what apps like SimpleCal, LockMix, etc., do with the new lockscreen capabilities. In the past, they've relied on just changing the background image. Now, they can make the lockscreen that much more dynamic, interactive, and cool. :)

    I can't wait to see how Rudy's apps take advantage of this. And, Facebook, Skype, all Bing apps, maybe even Cortana, with her "halo" constantly rotating on your lock screen.

    I really hope they enable animation support... like you said, the Halo constantly rotating and so on. My friend with an android, has a picture of a puppy moving around or something like that. I might not use the animation, but more customization is better. I'm sure others would love to have.

    Coming when the official carrier rollout of WP8.1 begins. Not available just yet.

    This will be a "showcase" app, to show what new things developers can do the new lockscreen API. Then, shortly after the app is released, the API will be made public and wondrous creations will begin to appear.
