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.

+1. Progressive disclosure only works in software which has a small amount of functionality and is meant to be mainly used by totally unexperienced people. Blender is not in this case.

When I say easy to understand, I mean that there are few, relatively simple basic principles, and you understand rather quickly how things are organized. It's not like, say, office suites menus (ribbons included), when you regularly spend time looking for things even after having found them once.
