I live there now, and have for the last two. It's more than livable. Feel free to join in.
That still doesn't change what Ambroos said, which is a fact:
(dammit can't copy/paste in IE 11, gotta type it) The fact that there aren't any more advanced Metro apps says a lot about the quality of the platform. The software that is there, even Microsoft's own, is extremely limited in functionality compared to what we had before.
Whether you love Modern UI or not, it makes no sense to deny that reality. One needs only to meet at the coliseum to review the Core Apps: Xbox Music/Video/Mail. All usable, all limited in functionality in some way or another. What's the point in denying it? More people saying, "not good enough" can only result in improvement.
