  From  Jargon  File  (4.2.3,  23  NOV  2000)  [jargon]: 
 
  Exploder  n.  Used  within  Microsoft  to  refer  to  the  Windows 
  Explorer,  the  interface  component  of  Windows  95  and  WinNT  4.  Our 
  spies  report  that  most  of  the  heavy  guns  at  MS  came  from  a  Unix 
  background  and  use  command  line  utilities;  even  they  are  scornful  of 
  the  over-gingerbreaded  {WIMP  environment}s  that  they  have  been  called 
  upon  to  create.
