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 find it funny how MS is slowly making their UI more consistent while Apple is slowly doing the opposite. Love or hate the ribbon interface, at least MS is sticking to it and slowly deploying it across the OS. In Apple's case what the hell happened to iTunes, Mac Appstore, iCal and Addressbook (in Lion)?

My biggest gripe with XP vs Vista/7 is how convoluted they made things that used to be simple. However I definitely give MS a thumbs up for effort, Windows 7 is their best version yet. Win 8 seems to be building on things nicely. I say this as someone who would never buy a Windows machine, I'm a mac user, but you have to give credit where its due.
