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 ribbon clearly has no place in simpler applications. It's about contextually displaying relevant features so you can declutter the interface of stuff that isn't relevant to the task at hand. How often is something Explorer can do not relevant to basic file management? I can appreciate if they'd have contextual controls for when you select a video, or a picture, or a document, but that's about as far as it needs to go.
