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.

There are usually just a few common actions a person will perform with a file

And that is exactly what the ribbon was not designed to do. It's main purpose is to give visibility to the least visible functions, otherwise the old toolbar was just fine.
