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.

Using WinXP on my work laptop and Ubuntu on my desktop. I already find it complicated and confusing at times using Win7(intuitive my a**), I bet with Win8 I'll be even more lost...
I mean... Clean and obvious should be their main goal not bells and whistles.

If it takes me less time to open up Google and use their calculator functionality, than opening up one in Win7 - there is a usability problem.
My first reaction to the new Explorer is "OMG! TMI! UI Bloat."

There is another point, that you've been using since Win95 implying that you used Vista. I skipped Vista altogether.

PS: The damn thing still can't go into sleep mode on my Vista certified desktop...
