Yes. New, radical and crap. Being different doesn't attract customers. Being better does. Microsoft's idiotic tile-based interface is a waste of precious screen real estate. It isn't better, it's more confusing and more time consuming. Fail. And the sales numbers prove it.
But hey, hats off to Microsoft for not simply ripping-off a competitor for a change. That's new and radical. Pity they're so poor at innovating, and so slow about it, too.
