But MS has taken a number of poor steps in UI recently.  The ribbon interface, though visually pretty-pretty, is not well thought out.

I, and the software industry, completely disagree with you.  Microsoft's Office ribbon is now the industry standard for software with other major software moving to the ribbon as it offers a graphic view of software options in stead of pulldown menus with sub menu options that is geared far more towards the computer programmer than the average computer user.

I find things far quicker using a ribbon than pulldown menus primarily because the ribbon is horizontal and pull down menus are vertical.  It's elemental to how people read.
