I think the ribbon is one of the best things they ever invented. Today you can go to Word, Excel, PowerPoint, WLMM, Wordpad, Paint, etc - and you are never alienated. Yes the buttons and icons are different depending on what the functions of the program are. But all the basic things are the same or similar. I love it.

Fore more Touchscreen Friendly over all than what is available right now.

Remember,, they are headed for the Cloud.

Just Think about it,,,,another step closer to having a full use touchscreen system you can incorporate into anything in your house,to do anything you need.

Future Home............

Too bad there are those in this country who demand our lifes savings be sucked dry by high bills and vampire's.

I don't want a "cloud" OS, whatever the hell that even means. I want an Operating System that's entirely offline based, because I don't want to depend on some faceless corporation's server for my OS to operate properly. If Windows 8 is going to have this horrible ribbon interface, I guess I'll be passing on Windows 8 then, or at least until a 3rd party tool is released that makes it go away.

I totally agree with you Stormkitty. I have a lot of confidential information on my system that I want and need to have 100% control over. There is no way I would allow this information to be floating around in cyberspace and available to any tekkie with the capability to hack into it.

My users are very non-tech savy, and it took them a while to adjust from Office 2003 to 2007, but they've all realized how much more efficient a ribbon is. I say it all the time in the General section, and I'll say it here as well. Don't confuse the need for a learning period with a sign of a bad product. No one returns a car because they have an adjustment period to the new controls.

The point is, that many users do not like being forced to endure a learning phase before they can use software they have otherwise been using quite happily for years. I agree with them. Software should do what the user wants and how he wants to do it, not force him to do it some other way.

Many users simply do not have the time to learn things like this. It may just increase their productivity when they do learn it, ( although I rather doubt that), but it is initially confusing and contra-productive.

That is why there are so many alternatives.

I am always rather amused that people expect Microsoft to help them in some way. Microsoft exists for one single purpose, to make money, and they are very good at that.

What time are we talking about. Learning the ribbon of a product takes 1 or 2 hours. And then you have a good base to deal with the ribbon of another product - e.g. going from Word to PowerPoint or WLMM. If it takes more that that, I would say they do not have the brains to learn it. But then they should stay away from computers.
