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 don't think a regular Joe geek cares either.

Most people including most geeks just want to play a few games and then maybe listen to music while surfing the web. I bet if you went to a software developers convention the typical phone would be an iphone with a dozen games installed. It's a minority of a minority that wants smartphones to have unrestricted multitasking. For most geeks the laptop or netbook is never that far away.
