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.

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...

start, type calc in the search and hit enter. less than 2 seconds.

there is plenty of difference between vista and 7.

the task bar and jump lists being the biggest differences (also the best changes)

If you can't sleep then it is probably a BIOS setup. I have a q6600 CPU on an Asus P5A motherboard (4 years old) and I have no problems sleeping.
