I must say, I really like that design, it matches up quite nicely with iOS 7 and probably a more polished iOS 8. What is everyone else's thoughts?

Although it is just a concept, I can't say I like the non-transparent old-style buttons on transparent blurred and coloured background. Also the inconsistency between rounded and flat corners (though I guess this is present in most GUIs). Good enough for a concept, though.
EDIT: Look at the Mail app, for example. Everything has flat corners, except for the buttons at the top, the search textbox and the 'Your answer...' textbox.

At this point I'd be happy if they just dropped all the grey gradients.

The iPhoto scheme looks nice.
The Mail looks nice, but Windows 8.1 Modern Mail is better with the exception of the contact photo. That's a nice addition that adds a pleasing splash of color.

Even with the inconsistencies noted by some, I like some of what you have done especially the subtle transparency on the window borders.

Haha...even with like 4 or 5 screens it's totally inconsistent.
I really don't get that. Is it just suppose to be a mock up of different styles or is that suppose to be what they look like on the same PC?

So it'S going to look like Vista? I sort of doubt that.
Finally. An opportunity for me to agree with you.

It's very likely that the next OS X will have a design refresh, and very likely 80% of Mac users will complain that the last design was fine as it was (the new design will be too white. etc..) and then in will come the article and forum posts "they are blurring the line between desktop OS and iOS".
At this point i'd be happy for it to adopt some design aspects of iOS.
