The reference value is actually 1/c seconds. You only ever need it if you're doing math with the speed of light and the complexity is either there already or it makes it easy to co-relate with other c terms in equations. It's actually much simpler than using inches.... Try it.

I also have no use for most of the metro apps, exception maybe to the weather app that gives me a quick overview on the live tile. What I did was remove them from start, fill the slots with desktop apps, and now it works like a fancier start menu. With search as you type now including settings I use it like I used to with the classic start menu, only had to disable the bing integration. The new start button is actually just occupying space as I was already getting used to the hot corner.
