Sharing the same UI however is simply put a horrible idea. The first tablets used the normal desktop interface, that was a failure. Give it a great touch interface like Apple and Google did and they're a huge success!
Now their trying to force the tablet UI on the PC. It's bound to fail. There has to be an option for a classic desktop interface. Otherwise Windows 8 will fail at its biggest market segment.

Lion's iPad like features are implemented as an additional layer above the normal desktop UI. I tried to use them for a while but honestly those features are just not productive or down right useless.
