I don't get what all the hoopla is about, I only look at the start menu for a couple seconds; I dragged all my important apps to the left side, so I hit the windows key, and click the app I want, then the metro interface goes away. I'm guessing this is about people who want to make fullscreen metro games?

WinRT developed apps are what he was referring to. [...]
what is the importance of these WinRT apps?

They're referring to "metro" apps which can only be acquired from the microsoft app store, WinRT is the lame version of Windows 8 that only runs on an ARM processor.

Metro was just the internal name for the tablet stylized UI used by microsoft, but the word Metro apparently is tied down to another company in terms of trademarks. Then they wanted everyone to call them Windows Store apps, I think the latest is "Modern UI" apps.
