Which Microsoft Office UI do you prefer?

I'm surprised at how many Ribbon preferring users there are

I used to hate the ribbon, but it's grown on me. The old drop down menus really, really sucked now that I think about it.

Only thing I don't like is that it's a bit of a pain to find where I set custom tabs in Word, though since 80% of everything I do uses Excel and the other 20% is mostly Outlook and Power Point, it doesn't really matter.

Dropdown menu, it's easier to find things that you are looking for. Granted 90% of the stuff I do in office will be done with keyboard shortcuts but there's that 10% that doesn't have one and they are typically harder to find with the ribbon than the dropdown.

Drop Down > Ribbon, for pretty much everything ever

Totally agree.

I can use either, but highly prefer ribbon. It's gets pretty damn annoying having to search through 10 drop down menus to find what you are looking for.

Ribbon annoyed me at first but I've gotten used to it. I prefer it now.

I prefer the menu, but mainly because I know where most of what I want to do is and it doesn't use up as much screen space (more useful on smaller resolutions).

That said one time I took a test which involved Ribbon for Word and Excel despite only minimal usage and still managed to get IIRC 13/15 for both (although the test is partially to blame e.g. it wouldn't accept ctrl+c).
