Windows Ah yes, Windows Explorer. One of the oldest parts of Windows, and yet, it's far from perfect. It's hated less than, say, the Finder (but that's no achievement), but most geeks I know aren't particularly fond of it either. For Windows 8, Microsoft is going to make the biggest change ever to Explorer's interface: it's getting the ribbon treatment.

Yes. And Ribbon makes it even worse.

.. and fails miserably.

> The up button is back as well

And does it work this time? It didn't work properly and consistent in XP. Removing it was only a logical consequence.

> While I love the ribbon in Office,

Good for you. It's IMHO a major productivity brake.
