It really is a turd wrapped in foil and labeled candy. Dig a layer or two deeper beyond the hipster flat UI design and there it is, same old same old Windows. As far as the computer, my problem with these Xeon processors is that I'm trying to get my computers more power efficient. I don't disagree that is a pretty nice kit, but two of those running has to be approaching 150W. I've been eyeing an Ryzen 1700x with 8 cores 16 threads, but even those are pretty power hungry.
