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 know people already complaining about the complete lack of business class or ability to modify the Win7 welcome screen. They really think that turning it into a home user image display makes thing better? I hope they at least enable some theming so business users can have something a little less toy'ish.

since when has a solid grey and square UI meant business?

Seriously... if I am working in windows 7 at work, I want my buttons and my jump lists to be default win 7 experience. They are a huge productivity increase. the win 7 UI has streamlined windows so that it stays out of your way when you are working.
