I love the ribbon interface of Office 2007 but one of the most frequent reaction that I’ve heard towards this ribbon interface is “Where is the menu bar gone?” or “Why they had to change the user interface altogether?” and so on. I’ve also seen some revert back to Office 2003 due to this change in interface. If this describes you then you might find UBitMenu very useful. UBitMenu provides the user interface of the old Office 2003 interface even when you are using Office 2007. UBitMenu does not hide the ribbon interface, but adds the classic menu as a new ribbon. Gradually you will realize that many functions are easier to handle using Office ribbons and you will slowly shift towards using the ribbon interface.
