Similarity with the final Win 8 UI hints at the common interface design language being a much more complex affair for Redmond, that has been developed from the onset with the idea to unite all gadgets with Microsoft OS on them, and prep them for the touchscreen era that is upon us...

Am I the only one that HATES Windows8 or is it IE10? Whatever the News player and such built into the front of Windows8. It's huge and blocky and makes me feel claustrophobic. Its taking what needs to be displayed in a small window and expands it over the whole screen.. its overkill. Ill stick with Win7 for now and for a LONG LONG time.

You're not the ONLY one, but your description is a bit novel, I'll grant you. Personally I like it. I wish the width of the scroll bars in IE10 was a bit wider, but everything else has been great (AND SO MUCH FASTER!!!). 8 is great on a touchscreen, so-so on a non-touchscreen, but desktop mode alleviates a lot of the things folks claim not to like - usually the same folks that ballyhooed 7 and still think XP is the greatest thing since Donkey Kong.
