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.

Spot on!

That's the whole charm of designing user interfaces: finding the balance. The ribbon interface has its place, but there's also places where it should not be. I think that Windows Explorer is one of the latter.

Putting the ribbon interface into Explorer is a solution in search of a problem.
