Office 2007 add-on adds back classic menus

Don't go there -- train yourself in the new user interface; it's much more effective 

A Chinese developer is turning back the clock with an add-on to Microsoft Corp.'s Office 2007 that returns traditional menus to the suite's applications.

Addintools in Hai Nan, China, sells Classic Menu for Office 2007 as an add-on for users leery of Microsoft's new interface and its "Ribbon." The Ribbon, a major departure from earlier Office application interfaces, groups commands by tasks rather than by hierarchical menus. When the new look was unveiled more than a year ago, many users balked at the idea of walking away from long-learned habits.
