Why Windows Explorer? Because the new Metro style environment doesn’t have a full-strength file manager.
But why not write a file manager using Metro? Same for the decision to include both the desktop and Metro versions of IE — if the desktop version of IE has certain essential features, why not just add those features to the Metro version?
I still don’t get it.
Gruber doesn’t get it because Microsoft doesn’t get it. It’s confusing because Microsoft is confused.
