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.

I can't remember if Thom was a loud proponent at the time. Keep the scope within software released and think back.

Apple release the Iphone OS without copy/paste, multitasking and such. It was a big proud flag for detractors to wave about "Iphone sucks cause it doesn't do these basic things that other phones do!"

Win7 Phone OS launches without multitasking, cut/paste and such and everybody skips over it.

It's perfectly OK for Win7 Phone to lack these features in early releases but when Apple does it and the sky is falling.
