Metro apps, along with the Metro interface itself, are designed with touch-enabled devices in mind, therefor it’s only logical that they are stored and accessed differently in order not to confuse the traditional user that uses Windows 8 just like any other previous operating system, with no interest in the touch-interface and its features.
