No, you computer will always boot to the Metro UI, there is no way to change that, but there is a small program you can get called ViStart, which adds the start menu to Win8.
All the things they supposedly removed in Win8 are for the most part still there. WMP is still there, hidden away. There were even rumords of DVD Video compatibility being removed but I ran a few DVD's and they worked fine in WMP, they didn't work in that Metro Video Player thing that MS has now.
