Terrified of change – no.
To me, the ribbon is an oversized tool taking up too much space, displaying too much information and has been change for change sake.
When it comes to supporting users. The ribbon is seen by many as a drastic change. The people who it took years to get used to the idea of looking in one place for information now need to get used to looking elsewhere.
I like the idea of a customisable toolbar (much like Office 2007+ Quick Access Toolbar) but coupled with Menus. I want less clutter on my screen, not more.
Menus keep relative functions stored in a neat and accessible way until needed. They encourage the learning of keyboard shortcuts through their underlining and display rather than having to rely on pop ups.

Yes, agree !! No Ribbon Please !! On the menus, make them more intuitive to allow what is shown on the menus. (Personally configurable).!! Not everyone was everything shown all at the same time. We do not use them all, all of the time. Without causing problems (for example purpose only) with Ipods, where you could have selecting what is shown on menu list. Thoughts anyway...
also, aussies are upside down, all their blood is in their feet, their water is demonic and vortexes in the wrong direction, and they aren't actually people.
Yep.! And we have kangaroos hopping down the street and are all related to Paul Hogan. !!
