Is there a "Metro" skin available, like Windows 8 Server?

To get what I'm talking about:
I just think that for Windows 8 desktop, this looks a bit better than Aero as it matches Metro (could be touched up slightly though)

It's pretty close to what I'm looking for.

Only now I have to extract the theme itself, as installing stuff like yet another charms bar is useless.
