Windows Ah yes, Windows Explorer. One of the oldest parts of Windows, and yet, it's far from perfect. It's hated less than, say, the Finder (but that's no achievement), but most geeks I know aren't particularly fond of it either. For Windows 8, Microsoft is going to make the biggest change ever to Explorer's interface: it's getting the ribbon treatment.

That "more files can be shown in an Explorer window" picture is a lie. Windows 7 Explorer's status bar by default is set as small. In the picture, however, it is changed to large, leaving less space for files.

Yes, I found this part shocking too: my explorer is clearly not configured the way they show it in their biased comparison.
