Microsoft "Microsoft on Thursday detailed some of the new features in its forthcoming Office for Mac 2011 suite, including co-authoring tools, Web apps, and a redesigned ribbon interface more consistent with its Windows counterpart. Microsoft is a part of Macworld 2010 expo in San Francisco this week, and has used the event to divulge details on its forthcoming update to Office for Mac, expected to arrive later this year."

Mind you, I'm assuming it's hidable, so power users will find their way around the issue.... It doesn't change the fact that it's a ridiculous and inexplicable design decision for a target audience whose screens are often only 800 pixels high.... with the menu bar, title bar, and toolbar combined I estimate it takes around 50 pixels more vertical real estate than the Windows version.

That said, the new buttons on the ribbon look very nice and Mac-like. ;)
