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.

lol who cares about how Internet Exploder looks anyway?

Exploder is a great tool..
for downloading other browsers ;)


The article is talking about Explorer, not IE. You know, the file manager?

Its quite late here so I didn't notice. Also, seems like I read news from windows' side of things a little sloppy compared to other more interesting news.

But hey:
Is there really much of a difference?
I can think of one important one though:
Its a lot more difficult to download and install an alternative file manager than a better web browser.. hehe ;-)

Windows users get skrewed hard over and over, and they dont even notice. They even pay for this madness

aptitude install pcmanfm (or thunar ...)
or keep it minimalistic, stick with bash

bash FTW!

I could use a graphical file manager in Windows so I can have useful features like icon preview and drag select but I use bash in cygwin to feel special and superior to others. I'm perfectly willing to cut my own productivity for an ego boost.

[sarcasm]I get screwed big time for paying £100 which works flawlessly for years on end and is updated regularly[/sarcasm]

Get over yourself. I haven't been screwed on Windows ever ... I could still be using the Windows XP license I bought 8 years ago if I wanted to.

Though the Suse Linux 9.2 CDs I bought are now coasters.
