There's a lot to like about Metro but the overall implementation is pretty poor, especially when talking about multi-monitor support and the use of large, high resolution displays. Most apps dom't take advantage of the vertical resolution on high resolution displays; you can't have apps running on multiple monitors; dragging an app from one screen to another automatically snaps it; you can't use the same gestures as desktop apps (drag to top to maximise, for instance); there is no proper shared task manager for both environments (there is alt-tab, though that's not designed for tablets and is a feature most users don't know about); apps don't auto-update or don't do so promptly (to get updates I have to go into Store and manually trigger them, despite auto-updates being enabled); you can't move multiple apps on the Start Screen (aside from moving groups); the Charm bar is horrible, especially with multiple monitors.
I do use Metro apps but only those with worthwhile functionality, like XE.com, Solitaire and Cocktail Flow. That said, there's no reason most of my main criticisms couldn't be addressed with Windows 9.
