I've been playing with the community preview edition and I can see where it would have some appeal to end users. I have to admit that Metro is a slick interface - as much as I wanted to hate it.
However, there's currently one glaring issue that, if not addressed, will be a deal-breaker: Currently, Metro apps and W8 Desktop apps do not share Internet proxy information. You have to run a netsh line in order to push info from the latter to the former... And even then, a lot of Metro apps CAN'T CONNECT.
This does not bode especially well for apps developed by organizations in-house, if Metro is the new go-to interface. Despite many postings in the DevNet forums, Microsoft does not appear to be interested in fixing this.
For home use, I may take the plunge. For work, until this is fixed, I will be recommending that we hold off.
