Windows 8 Welcomes The Ribbon
Though a highly controversial feature regarding the Microsoft Office Suite, the ribbon user interface has made its way into homes and business throughout the last couple of years. In the new build regarding Windows 8, it looks as if Microsoft is trying to make the ribbon user interface mainstream, and a part of the consumers everyday life, whether they are inside of an Office application or not. Luckily for now, there is a setting that allows users to revert the ribbon style look back to the old toolbar style, though obviously its early in the game of the new operating system, and there is no telling if the feature will stick in. It is also not known if the ribbon user interface will end up as prominent as it currently is in the final build, but either way, Microsoft is pushing it into their latest Operating System, and making it well known.
