You will notice that the "Metro" interface made popular with the Windows Phone 7 devices is making its way into other Microsoft products such as Windows and Xbox.

  4. Paul,

    Windows 7 was Released To Manufacturing in Jul 2009, so it is already 2 years old.  Windows 8 is still a little way off, so I don't think the rate of change is too fast.  Some would say it is too slow.
