I have yet to meet a single person who has taken the time to learn 2k7 that does not absolutely love it. Im not the biggest office user personally, but I really hope MS extends the ribbon ui to their other products that have an insanely complex toolbar/menu system (like studio).

Well if you're taking opinions you can count me as one of the few who hate the ribbon UI, at least as it's currently implemented. They could have done better by simplifying the menu structure rather than doing a complete overhall, but that's just my opinion of course. What most people love is what I actually hate, the context-sensitive nature of it. I don't like when my options move around on me, I guess I just find it more annoying than helpful.
