Not "everyone" just people who lack the intelligence to recognize that they really should just stick to windows 7 if you don't want to use metro. This is not new, when windows first came out people would just close windows and do everything in DOS because that is what they were used to.
windows 8 is not just win7 + metro as many make it out to be... there are plenty of preformance improvements and optimizations that make it worthwhile to upgrade for anyone for the price of $15 or now $40... its a great OS with a tablet UI, nothing wrong with that, most people right now are just choosing to avoid it
and its not like windows either because windows brought new functionality, metro is an app layer and that's really it, the only benefit it brings to the desktop is a streamlined UI across all platforms.
as for apps closing when you click on the desktop that is because windows 8 now sees the desktop as just another app. so as far as the OS is concerned you have an app on one screen (classic desktop) and metro start screen on the other. when you click on the desktop screen it activates that app system wide bringing it up on all screens.
as for getting metro to stretch across all screens I have searched before and have yet to find anyone who has done is successfully.
