There’s an interesting post over at the Building Windows 8 blog today (a blog which, by the way, I am monitoring like a hawk). They even mentioned us as one of several popular add-ons!
So, it seems the ribbon is here to stay. Personally, I don’t mind it as long as it can be minimized, but I know many people hate it with an intense passion. The Quick Access Toolbar looks very nice, a great return to form that makes our own button bar look outdated. I highly doubt this will be possible, but would be so great to be able to put our own buttons on that thing. I expect another build will be leaked after the BUILD conference in September… I can’t wait to get my hands on it and see how hackable it is.
