Not maybe. I have a Lumia 900 (WP7) and Lumia 920 (WP8). Windows Phone 7 (November 8, 2010) came out with Metro long before Windows 8 debuted (August 1, 2012). Both came about from usability research just like the changes that appeared in Windows Vista did (also frustrated die-hards). iOS and Windows Phone 8 have little in common beyond having a walled garden for software. Makes sense. It is cheaper to add features and fix problems.
