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.

Usless on a modern 16:9 screen.

Anything that uses up vertical resolution like this must be given the heave ho.
It might be ok on 4:3 screens but as everything seems to be going widescreen these days(16:9) then this has to be a NO-NO.

Do these guys at MS evey get out of their basements and into the real world? With all these toolbars and not a ribbon there soon won't be any room on the screen for actual data.

Oh silly me. Perhaps that is what they want all along?
