Is that the new buzz word that's caught on your make it seem worth it?
Because the assumption is true for the most part. Even in that recent Windows 8 forum poll, the forum dedicated to Windows 8, only 25% of respondents have actually used Windows 8.
As for productivity, it depends on the person and how well (or unwell) they are able to integrate the metro style into their workflow. I don't think it improved my productivity any, and there are some things that I don't think are implemented well, but they're mostly just minor stuff to me, and don't impact my day to day use. The start screen has grown on me, and I wouldn't want to switch back to the start menu.
Your negative attitude towards Windows 8 may have impacted the people you know on their opinion of Windows 8. I know there was a different user who said he showed Windows 8 to his friends and family with a positive attitude, and they have all liked it.
