If You Love or Hate the Ribbon, You'll Love or Hate Win 8

The Ribbon has been out since Office 2007, and legions of users still hate the darn thing. Microsoft, however, loves it and plans to use it in Windows 8, specifically to manage files. You can say goodbye to the old Windows Explore, and hello to a whole new interface.

The new Ribbon-based Windows Explorer will have a File tab, as well as View, Share and Home. The Ribbon is customizable and offers shortcuts for Windows Explorer commands.
