Corporations have their own pace to adopt a new OS, specially when that OS is everywhere in the corporation, takes time and money... but I personally believe that time will come and it won't take too long as with other versions of the windows in the past.
For me a touch screen mean easy-to-use as you go (mobile) and desktop is for high demand of intensive processing, we have both in win8. Is this a bad thing? Besides that windows 8 is social and comes integrated with most well know social networks and above all everything seems to work well.
Concerning the design (metro), as like anything else, there is people who likes and people who doesn't like but I think everyone agrees that those titles look nice and the feed stream...just super...
