I like office 2010, but I want that old bar back. Thats all.
If there is no way to do that, then I will switch back to 2003. The problem is that there are compatibility issues with them.

Why can't you put Word Count in your own tab? You can have your file, menu, edit, tools, etc. back - Just make the tabs and uncheck all the crap you dislike. You don't need to keep what MS dishes out. To me, it's been beyond aggravating to not be able to customize Word's menu like this for the past 15 years. (Interesting that you mentioned Word Count because, for me, that was always in a horrible place.)

Not trying to ruffle anyone's feathers, but for the first time you can put Word Count where you want, and I can put it where I want - plus the other 15 billion or however many commands are in there.

This is an incredible change.

I totally agree that the changes to the ribbon available in office 2010 do improve matters no end. I have been customizing office toolbars for many years and thought it a retrograde step in office 2007 not to have this functionality.

For those who are still with office 2007 I wouls again reccomend the UbitMenu add-on I suggested before UBit Schweiz: UBitMenu (languages) as it provides a good compromise

I'll be glad when I can give 2010 a try. It's not the ribbons themselves that I dislike, it just that I would like to put stuff where I expect it to be. Yes, I'm starting to learn where stuff is at, but it is still so much slower than having one or two toolbars. No clicking from one toolbar to the next they're just there. If I can have a couple ribbons that have all of my most used buttons on, that will be fine with me, although it is still an extra click to get to half my stuff.

I actually like the new ribbon. It looks much more innovative and is more aesthetically pleasing. Plus, I actually ended up being able to find stuff here better than in past versions with the menu bar.

Also, you have to remember that Microsoft Office has a very high market share (probably the highest in the world), meaning that even though you might know where things are, other people won't because the majority of the population aren't tech-savvy. Because of this, many people don't know where everything is in Microsoft Office. This was why Microsoft changed the user interface, to make things easier for the less tech-savvy people, so while you might think this change hinders you, the majority of the population will most likely like this change.

This is also kind of why Microsoft refuses to put a Windows equivalent of Mac's Spaces into Windows. While the tech-savvy people may like it, it may greatly confuse those who aren't tech-savvy.

Has anyone installed Office 2010 14.0.4302? I'm wondering how long it can be used until it dies.

I believe this is the "Mondo" version, whatever that means.

I don't want it in my own tab, I want it where I expect it to be: In the tools drop down menu. Which no longer exists.

The real reason this pisses me off so much is that not only did MS change it to a (counter intuitive IMO) new interface, there is NO OPTION TO GO BACK! That's right. They JUST AS EASILY could have an option to "Turn on Classic Menu" or something. Why not? I would use it, and I am sure many others would too!

So I guess I cannot truly complain about this until I try customizing the Ribbon. But I will, because I see no good reason why that classic menu could not be included as well.
At some point, I will mess with the ribbon, and try to make it into something that makes sense. But you have to remember that I can be pretty damn lazy, so it probably will take a back seat to things like homework and sleep.

I hate the Classic Menu Bar. Ribbon is by far the best innovation by Microsoft for a long long time. It makes everything so much easier. The ribbon is here to stay.

AutoCAD has already adopted the ribbon. I would love to see the ribbon in Photoshop, because at the moment the Photoshop UI is a complete mess.

i believe the best you can do is get the 2007 ribbon (search for in Rivera's page of within windows...)
and you can also get a file, edit menus to a point using (barman i believe said) Ubitmenu (UBit Schweiz: UBitMenu (languages))
