What do you like most about Metro, just curious?

I like the look -- it's clean, simple, and functional. It's capable of providing a reasonable amount of information at a glance. It doesn't seem to be a resource hog. Now, I'm not sure how well some apps would translate to Metro (I'm thinking of stuff like MS Office, Visual Studio, and other large, complex applications), but for a lot of the things we do, I feel like it works rather well.
Keep in mind that I've been using Windows Phone since it came out and own a Zune HD (which is Metro-styled also). But I loved the look of Windows Phone when I saw the first screenshots, long before I could get my hands on one, and got excited about Windows 8 when I saw those first shots of the new Start screen.
In the case of both WP7 and Win8, the start screen and I just get along. It was comfortable from the first time I used it. I'm not sure if I'm really conveying anything useful there, but that's it.
