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 didn't say it didn't need work, even that mock up has its faults like the over crowdedness issue you pointed out. But it does look better than the microsoft one (nav buttons BELOW the ribbon, seriously) and out of all the proposals that i've seen for the ext gen of Explorer its the best.
