Without debates about ribbon vs. Classic can we simply focus on improving the functionality of the ribbon interface?
Perhaps AD can write the functionality back into the interface for us...
. Allow icons to be dragged to convenient locations, so we can again group them how we need or prefer (if nothing else then at least allow for this when we are adding icons to quick access bar).
. I am sure there are several other basic things that could be considered but lets start the ball rolling before we get too excited.
. It seems dissapointing now, that with the newer technology we have at our disposal, we have less functionality in this regard than we had some years ago. was the interface de-tuned by intention? if so then lets be diplomatic about it and ask the question again.
A few hours of consideration on this topic would potentially make a significant impact... Positive from my point of view.
