There are ads in some of the Metro apps. I could understand if it's limited to 3rd party apps or MS apps you install from the store.
But in pre-installed apps coming with the OS you purchased?!?
Pre-installed apps should not display adds, since in a way, you already "payed" for it. It's a really lame move from Microsoft.
Like you said, I don't really care if the store apps have adds or not, since I have the choice to download them or not.

The pictures in the Metro apps look fine here on a 1080p/900p screen, maybe it's because of the VM? Thumbnails for the maps are low res, but when you click on them, it looks alright.
As for ads, as long as they are on the very far right, I couldn't care less if they are there.
Edit: Music app is s***, seriously. I have all my collection show up perfectly in WMP including artists/album names, but the music app shows 8,000 unknown artist songs in 3 unknown albums. Also the pictures metro app only loads maybe 1% of my pictures with thumbnail previews, looks very bad and makes it unusable.
I'm displaying at 1920x1200 here and let me tell you that some of those pictures looks really low-res if you look at them on a calibrated monitor. Some of them shows brutal image compression artifact (I even saw one where the image seems to be a still from a digital video footage because the artifacting looks like macroblocking).
