Microsoft The Microsoft empire is built upon two pillars: the Windows operating system, and Microsoft Office. Windows 7 made its way unto the scene last year, and now it's time to work on the other pillar. Today, Microsoft officially launched Microsoft Office 2010 and SharePoint 2010. Regular customers will be able to purchase the new versions next month, starting at 119 USD.

Look, I'm not arguing about the ribbon itself. I despise it personally. But you're talking about a lot more than a theme here. You said the classic UI. That means toolbars, menu bar, and everything related to it. A theme is one thing, maintaining two separate UIs is another and would be a recipe for disaster when Microsoft clearly doesn't care about the classic UI anymore.
