As far as I can see, Microsoft has nothing better to do than to copy Apple here. They introduce App Stores, and you'll see more and more restrictions on the software you can install. Why would it go the opposite way?
If the userbase doesn't like it, it probably will. Everything comes down to whether or not Windows users like the idea of losing the legacy Windows interface. If they don't want to lose it, then I could easily see Metro going the way of Windows Media Center.

Tons of security vulnerabilities? The ones it "had" get patched. As for how many are there you don't know about. You don't know and can't make such a claim, not without saying the same thing about every other language and system out there as well, so, not valid.
The rest is pretty much personal subjective opinions. And to really good reasons for saying its bad.
Java is considered bad because its somewhat bloated. Aside from that, people still use Java.
