To be fair, Apple are very committed to branding.
How did you get modded up for this? The Guardian says nothing about anything that is mentioned in the OSnews article.
Nothing, because they're licensed?
No it's not. Only an idiot actually believes that. In order to be a real currency, you kinda have to have a lot of people use it to directly buy and sell things.
You can already buy and sell things with Bitcoin. Example: Bitlasers. So where is the line? How many items have to be sold before it becomes a currency? The logical answer would probably be "one".
This article is about google and amazon in the UK. In an attempt at link baiting, there is a single line about apple in the US in the article so they would write Apple in the headline for clicks.
And slashdot fell for it - and so did I.
Actually the summary refers to the fact that Apple do this too.
Just because it's not specifically mentioned in the linked article, doesn't mean it's not happening.
Don't use a badly designed system?
I completely agree with you. Thousands on Slashdot wouldn't, because it's Microsoft and they're hunting desperately for something to blame them for.
Which, from the article, is exactly what they're doing.
I had to single out this post for response because none of things you laughably assumed about me are true.
I'll lighten up, if you can explain to me what's funny about telling your parents that you're a drug addict and a criminal.
Not in Google Play at all.

So your response is "Yes, I did basically conjure everything in my post out of thin air, but I'm still right because I'm afraid of change, even though someone just demonstrated the new interface is just as good for me as the old one."
I'm commenting on Office 2013 because that's the version I have.
Having booted up a different computer that has Office 2007, I can confirm it has the same layout.
Do you actually use Office with the Ribbon? On Word 2013, Bold, Italics, Justify, Bullets and Sort are all on the Home tab. The only option on a different tab is Table, which you can right click and click "Add to Quick Access" to put it in the top bar if you use it so often. Even if there wasn't a quick access bar, the customise options are still available, in Options -> Customise Ribbon.
So, to counter your post, there are 2 ribbons for your six commonly used features, with the option to easily add the 6th feature into the first ribbon.
