RE: Office 2007
I like it to, it's so much easier to work than the old menu driven interface. The reason why people hate is simple - Microsoft made it. If OO.org would present similar approach to interface before MS than everybody would praise it and comment how innovative and cool it is.
It is not so much that Microsoft made it is the problem, but rather that without fail Microsoft try to use things like this to eliminate competitors.
If Microsoft were to listen to their own argument that they used in the copyright lawsuit between Apple Inc. (formerly Apple Computer, Inc.) and Microsoft Corporation:
... and apply that same reasoning now to the concept of the ribbon interface, and hence just simply allow anyone who wanted to freely use the concept, then there would be no problem with the ribbon interface.
