Yeah me too. Thing is I can't rally say Metro is a "bad" idea, given the popularity of social networking and everything else it involves, but put it somewhere easily accessible and out of sight, maybe even a removable feature via the Programs and Features panel.
I'd be good with that.
EDIT: It's actually not so bad once all the garbage is removed from Metro. There's still very little control over icon placement, none over background and appearance of metro - but if that comes it may not be to painful to get used to.
