I think people liked Metro. It's the confusion in having some components in Metro (with almost no features) and it's traditional desktop cousin which had all the features you'd expect. Metro simplified too much. As soon as you needed real power, you needed to switch to the desktop version. Most of Windows management components were no available in the Metro UI. I'm not sure Windows 10 solved this... time will tell. That being said, I'm glad you liked Metro.

thousands of pedestrians are killed each year just in the United States

That number might be a lot less as it likely includes people who commit suicide. Same things with many traffic accidents. However, you cannot commit suicide by asteroid strike.
