Yes, and equally some people like anything new, whether it's better or not. Look at the people queuing all night to pay top prices for the latest iPhone which is almost the same as the one they've already got. Change for the sake of it is not useful.

However, neither is it useful to bandy about insults, as it's greatly a matter of preference.

Personally, I don't like Metro. Nothing against touch screens, I use smart phones and tablets, but my reasons for not liking Metro:

  1. The Metro interface is (IMHO) not good on a mouse/keyboard interface
  2. The Metro presentation of apps makes poor use of large screen space with fine-resolution pointing devices
  3. Having two different UIs for Windows is unnecessary and undesirable

I've used it extensively - I have Windows 8 on one of my two main machines

Prime example of anal retention! Harping on about one feature which you can easily ignore by setting a direct boot to the desktop. On and on about one feature...!
