You should go into a modern nursing home and watch them as they use
touch screens mounted on the walls. No keyboards, as they don't have
time. A touch screen is perfect for that kind of health care system and
most doctors approve of this approach.

the Metro UI is
so weird it is a nightmare to support, and it overall bombs for desktop

they wanted a tablet or phone interface they could have put it on one of
those devices and spared the desktop market of the dumbed-down GUI by
making a different version with a different GUI. Also, try to visualize
how horrible some of these common desktop applications would look if
M$ should have shifted their focus to the M$-dependent business sector
(e.g. health care).
Instead M$ went after the "Windows 9x Kids" who, after growing up,
managed to escape their wrath by using Mac and Linux (including embedded
versions and Android) and have no reason to return to the Illegal
Operations, Security Updates, and Service Packs of their childhood.
M$ will never "win" unless they shift their focus to the business sector,
which M$ continually frustrates as they continue wasting time/money on
the home user.
