Is the Windows 8 Start Screen customizable?

Will the Windows 8 Start Screen be customizable? What if I don't want a cluttered screen with 100 application icons on it - maybe I would prefer to only see my most-often used applications?

It remains to be seen exactly how it will turn out since Windows 8 has not been released in final form yet.
