Windows 8 Developer Preview: Windows Explorer Screenshot Gallery

Despite focusing quite heavily on the future with the new Windows shell and its Start screen and tailored, Metro-style apps in Windows 8, Microsoft is also investing in the classic and depreciated Windows desktop. This includes a new version of Windows Explorer, which includes a new ribbon-based UI, new Control Panels, a restyled taskbar, a new Task Manager, an improved file copy experience, and other new features.

This screenshot gallery focuses largely on Windows Explorer and its new ribbon-based UI, but also features a few Task Manager shots and a quick look at the new file copy dialog.
