Windows 8 Desktop Experience? Confusing

Windows 8 desktop experience? Confusing!

A mish-mash of tiles. 
Trying out Windows 8 on the desktop gives a strange feeling: there's a solid update to Windows 7, and then there's a strange interface which jumps context.
I've learnt to regard Windows 8 as being two operating systems. One part I've been thinking of as Windows 7.1. The "classic desktop" bits of Windows 8 is just Windows 7, minus the Start orb, with a new theme to replace Aero. This part is frankly superb.
If you like your weather app filling up the screen, you’ll love Windows 8.
