Windows Mixed Reality is a new platform and while the name might be a bit misleading you need to know what you do not get mixed reality right now. This feature will be available in the future but as of right now you can enjoy VR games. You should also note that for the price you only get the PC and the headset and you will need to get other things like the monitor. Check out the deal here.
