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.

Could be a good thing

A ribbon in Explorer could be a good thing, if it means they are going to either add a whole host of new file operations to be available to the UI, and make some hidden ones more accessible.

If there's a button to toggle display of hidden/system files without burying it deep in a menu, that's reason enough.
