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.

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.

Most widescreen displays are 16:10. I have one, and I make use of it by having several long windows side-by-side rather than wide, vertically-stacked windows. I’d rather sacrifice some vertical space than some horizontal space. (Ideally, of course, I wouldn’t have to sacrifice any space at all. :-)
