    Nice, just keep improving.
    The more you live, less you die. More you play, more you die. Isn't it great.

    Adding the ribbon isn't an improvement. Unless you do no actual work and just look at the UI Candy.

    Interesting. Apparently those who only ever knew the ribbon prefer it when asked to revert to the older style UI. I cut my teeth in the business world on office 2007 and probably as a result I certainly prefer it.

    Given that in this case its an optional UI that isn't enabled by default surely everyone gets what they want?

    I started with Word back in the mid 90's, and I still prefer the ribbon. Yes, it's a new thing to learn, but it's better once you know it. Not perfect, but better.

    Some things are opinion, but the fact the ribbon is crap is not one of them.

    I don't mind, as long as it's optional.
