Windows Ars Technica is running an interesting article about the Mail application on Windows 8. It's one of the first party Metro applications, and Ars' conclusion is that it's really, really not up to snuff - it can't even compare favourably to the mail application on Windows Phone. The sad thing is, however - this applies to virtually all Metro applications.

poor multi-monitor support

Actually people are saying it's better than in Win7.

locked down hardware that makes it next to impossible to dual boot your system to another OS

On ARM-devices, yes. On x86-devices you can just disable SecureBoot or buy a motherboard without it at all.

a "walled garden" ecosystem that locks out "unapproved" software from even RUNNING

This applies only to Metro-applications, not regular ones.

and to top it all off you will probably have to buy new hardware.

Windows 8 will run just fine on anything that runs Windows 7.
