Office 2007 was a tough sell because of the Ribbon interface -- which many still aren't used to (it took me a while but I think I now prefer it to the classic Office look).
Now that the Ribbon is fairly common, it really doesn't stand in the way of upgrading to Office 2010, at least for Office 20007 shops. That's one reason why Office 2010 is now "the fastest selling version of Office ever," according to Microsoft.
Enterprise pickup is brisk with a reported pace of five times the rate of Office 2007 adoption.
Despite what looks like impressive sales, some three quarters of shops are still using either Office 2003 or even older versions, according to Forrester. That gives the Ribbon about a 25 percent adoption rate.
