Windows 7 will continue with “that ribbon thing”

I’m seeing screenshots on the web about Windows 7. In particular, the Paint and Wordpad applications are showing up on Paul Thurrott’s blog site.

I still have yet to find anyone who thinks the Office 2007 ribbon was a good idea. I mean anyone outside of Microsoft, that is. Well, and other than Paul Thurrott. Real-world users that I work with every day hate the bloody thing and I’m consistently asked how to turn it off.

So they’re going to continue with that in Windows 7? Great idea.
