I'm not against "get inspiration" tout-court, and there are concepts I like in Windows (the revamped start menu, the context bar and others). What I do not like at all are the integral rip-offs, such as in the two latter screenshots...even the color are the same! So my motto is: get all the good ideas out there, add new ones and cook them all with our personal taste.

I like the 2nd.
I'd REALLY love this without the K logo between files and tree view (which I like on the right AND with that search).

Also I think that many of standard toolbuttons are unnecessary. Who needs more than prev, next, up, update ?
Nobody really *prints* from a file manager, I suppose. So, in place of "Open location" I'd put a placebar like the new gnome's one.

I was also wondering... that color used for the lower metabar... wouldn't be nice if EVERY window has an unique, little different color tone ? That may help to identify a window without looking to it's content.

This looks quite more than nice. I hope with the dev. of Tenor and more this would be more than a reality.

Question though, isn't this going to bring bloat?
