Its much easier to adobt than MS Office 2007-10.
MS lost it when they added ribbions and the rest of
the junk. Keeping the interface easy and familar is the way to go.

Ribbons are nice and their implementation is very good. It needs a bit of learning but it is very easy once we we learn a bit. Also for those who say ribbon takes away screen real estate, there is a nice feature of adding some icons to the titlebar, even some sub-sections of a ribbon as small icon. then minimize the ribbon. Please use it for sometime till you get a hang of it and you wont be able to use menu+toobar.

I really wish KDE people implement their menu + toolbar using the D-Bus + plasma embedded in the main window. This will help implement MacOS style menubar on top also. After its all about choice and D-Bud+plasma will definitely give it to us.

Well, that's something bad. We don't want this.

Microsoft, yes, of course!
