I'm sure there is a discussion on this somewhere, but why is it after the Q3 2012 release the font sizing was changed to a size only my grandmother could love?  I mean since when is a 16 pt font considered the baseline normal? Now I find myself having to scale my browser to 75% just to get some semblence of usability when viewing the demo site.

They call that "The Metro Style"...
Ugly and simply not usable... :(

Ok, so it's the Metro styling, but why doesn't it change the sizing when I use a non-Metro skin?

Well for starters, the last 3 companies I've used these controls in, the first thing always requested is to scale down the fonts.  As it was the 11/16 was often too big, but now the scale is off the chart.
