Why the "hate"?

Well maybe also its MS making it so metro stuff MUST be sold through MS store since windows won't let you install unsigned apps and the only way to get it signed is to go through MS, and MS can refuse to allow you to buy a signature for an app for any reason? What you want to get that free open source tool that does something very handy in metro flavor? DENIED.

Sounds like we have a choice each purchase or a developer has a choice when they design their apps? Do I want this Metro App? Do I want to design this in Metro and deal with MS or traditional and keep things the same as they ever was?

If it was "only metro apps work in 8 and all apps go through MS", then I would completely laugh Win 8 off and Balmer has to go worse than the gnome at USPS. We could be approaching that... Balmer should have been gone a long time ago with the companies performance.
