up until now, using win7, I haven't had any issues
with them coming up, it is only now that one can't get win7 anymore, that it is
starting to be a real headache.
I am finding them very different, and next to
impossible to find the things I need/want to find on them. give me the standard
easy to use menus any day.

I am not happy with the way it is going with all these ribbon
This will likely start a war, but, "it is going"?
Where have you been?
The ribbons interface started all the way
back when Office 2007 was introduced and has been a part of Windows since
Windows 7. Microsoft is not "going" but went a very, very long time
And whether you like the ribbon interface or not, Gene's
assertion, " in essence, ribbons are like
menus but differently organized," is spot on, and the organization is
not all that different. For those using keyboard shortcuts, the ones
you've been using "since dirt" have remained unchanged. Learning how to
navigate the ribbon is just not difficult. I see a lot more active
resistance to learning how to do so that's a far greater impediment than the
ribbons themselves ever have been.
If you're going to stay in the
Windows ecosystem the choice is learning how to use the ribbon interface or
flounder. It's that simple. And no one need flounder unless by
