    I think it should be called "Homie".

    I personally like "Home". It gives me a warm fuzzy feeling.
    Acids can give you a warm, fuzzy feeling as well. Usually followed by pain, but for the first few seconds its not so bad.

    Don't look like a replacement to me, just an addition.

    Yeah, I don't think This PC has been replaced by Home. It seems like Home is like a Most Frequently Used list of directories and files...

    Why does Program Manager come to mind?...

    Either way, more File Explorer goodies to use! I can't wait for a new File Explorer!

    Well, then we could

    Go Home or be Home on the range
    On another computer you would be at a Home away from Home.
    When navigating up through the folder hierarchy, you would be Homeward bound.

    I usually keep my files in a separate folder structure anyway, certainly on a separate physical drive. All these creations from the navigation pane I usually hide, leaving only the actual drives and partitions. So, I really don't care. Of course, there are programs that are hellbent on saving some files in"My Documents" or something like that, but in those cases where I actually need the program, I find a way of telling it where to save the files that I care about.
