I gave metro, or whatever they're calling it now, a shot and I just didn't like it. I could definitely see this interface being nice on a touchscreen, but with a mouse it's just crap.
And now as of today I can confirm my suspicions (which already seems to be the general opinion when it comes to W8) that yes, the interface was truely optimized for a touchscreen. While I was at the mall getting my iPod replaced, I also popped into the Microsoft store. Well, wandered by might be a more appropriate choice of words, given that the "store" is in the middle of one of the walk ways. Anyway, I spent quite a few minutes with the Surface. And while I wouldn't personally buy one, it is a pretty nice piece of kit. Except for the keyboards that is. I didn't particularly like either one. The touch keyboard offers no feedback, and there is not enough of a gap between the keys on the other one.
