Click the "Desktop" tile in the Start menu and you're back at the old familiar Windows desktop. There are just a few changes here.

Notice the borders of windows are a little more squared-off than before. Also, Explorer now sports the Office 2007 ribbon interface. Otherwise, it's pretty much Windows as you know it. I like the ribbon interface. I've been using it in Office for years now so the change is no big deal. It's also easy to tuck out of the way. Just double-click on it to collapse it to an unobtrusive size.
