Regular programs, like the ones made in Java, will be launched in the traditional desktop, so the way you program won't change much there. But a programmer can make Windows 8 specific apps that will launch in the new metro system, and these will be created in HTML5, Javascript, and CSS. So it could make programming a lot easier depending on what kind of program you want to make. You wouldn't have to fool with Java if you just wanted to make a simple program.

If you stick with the SDKs and APIs microsoft has, it should not make a bit of difference.
