There are some really great core security features about it, but I have to agree with you that it is a dog to use and irrelevant to most desktop users...
The funny thing is, that under most of the back to front and poorly thought out graphic user interface the control panel and functionality is mostly the same.
It's not even really different, they just broke it to make it seem special.
Here's hoping that they get it right with Windows 9 next year...

I have been using Ubuntu off and on dual booting with XP. I have to say Ubuntu is a joy to use compared to Windows 8 without Classic Shell.

All things considered, I have no big issues with Windows 8, overall. The two "major" things are:
1. No start menu like Windows XP, Vista, or 7. However I use Stardock's Start 8 (about $5.00).
2. The problems encountered with Windows 8.1U had installing. But I worked out the issues, and now have the instructions to work through that.
The start screen (where the tiles are) isn't the "desktop". In windows 8.1, a person can cause windows bypass the start screen, and go to the desktop.
1. Right-click on an empty area of your taskbar.
2. Click on the "Properties" option.
3. Click on the Navigation tab.
4. Click the check box to the left of "When I sign in or close all apps on a screen, go to the Desktop instead of Start".
5. Click the "Apply".
6. Click Ok button.
Have a great day!
