Default Windows 8, Office 2012 Getting Metro UI?

Back in December, a rumor surfaced in regards to Windows 8 and the existence of two separate interfaces. These will reportedly coexist in the same way Basic and Aero currently reside in Windows 7.

For Windows 8, one interface codenamed "Wind" will be fully 3D, requiring around 170 MB of dedicated video memory. It will also be "fully dynamic" by adapting to the user's habits. This includes the ability to speed up daily tasks by changing shortcuts and icons to fit within different usage scenarios. "Wind" will reside in all copies of Windows 8, but remain inactive within the 32-bit environment.
