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."

Ribbon and OS X

Actually the ribbon was designed to remove the menu bar and the toolbar providing something more "intuitive" and easier to use [that depends on who are you talking to]; but, in this forthcoming Office version, we have the Mac OS X ubiquitous menubar, a tool bar and... a ribbon?

I have a low-end MacBook and filling my little screen with menubar, tool bar and ribbon does not make sense at all; I need to have a lot of screen room to see what I am writing; so, I will continue using my OpenOffice while they will not implement a ribbon-like interface too.
