Opinions from our Team:

"...another thing that I like is the Ribbon verses the old style toolbar. It was difficult to get used to in the beginning, but, since they are intuitive it makes it easier to find the function I need. They work the way I think: contextually. I also like that I don't have to remember complicated key commands, I can just press <alt> and the letter to perform a particular action will show up on the Ribbon" - Burt Ribet, Senior Engineer

"Having upgraded from Office 2003 directly to Office 2010, I was at first a little bit intimidated by the Ribbon bar. Now that I have had a chance to get used to it, I really like it. I'm a big fan of keyboard shortcuts and the new system makes it very easy to access any command without using the mouse" -
