Who Will Wear the Ribbon? Sun Will Wear the Ribbon!

The Office ribbon interface is pretty controversial. According to many of your recent letters, most of you are frustrated having to relearn Work, Excel and PowerPoint, while a handful love the new look.

To keep up with Office, Sun is looking to add a ribbon to OpenOffice -- possibly. The ribbon is available for download and the open source community is already up in arms. Not only that, the comments underneath our news story on this issue are universally negative.

Do you use OpenOffice, and if so, do you want a ribbon, even as just an option? Shoot your thoughts to dbarney@redmondmag.com.
