Windows Yes, the Windows 8 rumour mill is really spinning up now. This time around though, they're not really rumours, since the information is coming from Rafael Rivera and Paul Thurrott, long-time Microsoft enthusiasts with loads of insider access. They've got a bunch of screenshots showing a work in progress of... A ribbon in Explorer. And yes, it looks just as bad as it sounds.

The new Explorer UI is very interesting.

Covers many possibilities from very good to completely insane.
Well I finally upgraded from Office 2000 to 2007 and so I got the ribbon well I’ve been using Access for a week and have got used to it – but used to it like a slightly too tight shoe, it is horrid I think this is the first time I can remember ever having to use Google to find a feature on a toolbar, (usually when the feature is hidden on a submenu of the Office blob at the right hand.)
Seems to me the interface will have all the usability and attractiveness of the pilots controls on a new Boeing . Well I hope they keep the “search programs and files” as it will be needed a lot (at least by me)
