Perfected the Ribbon Interface; maybe not worth the upgrade from 2007.

  • Sep 23, 2010
  • by
Microsoft Office completely changed its look and interface with Office 2007, the biggest change being the removal of the many menus and submenus with the ribbon interface. This ribbon interface remains in 2010, and the 3 years of experience seems to have really helped Microsoft finetune things. They have changed the Office Button with a file menu. This is a very good compromise. The multitude of menus is gone, but the helpful and necessary key features that we've grown to expect in the File menu are there. There is a beautiful new print interface from the file menu. The ribbon is very good at "Guessing" what I'm going to need. I like 2007 after I got a chance to use it for a few months; I really love 2010.

The new Ribbon interface in my opinion is definitely worth the upgrade from the older versions of office. The interface has matured quite a bit and the wary should jump in with this upgrade. However, after a month of using it, I have not found much that would justify the high cost of upgrading from 2007, except OneNote, which is very much improved.
