    Will OneNote and Outlook get the new ribbon UI? Right now it's kinda of
    confusing. Shouldn't they keep the look consistent in all office apps?

    Do you know what is their reasoning behind this?
    Not enough time?

    This is dumb; Outlook and OneNote are the apps that'll be staying on and
    used all the time, the ones that the user would keep coming back to and be
    looking at the most - not having the sleek new Ribbon UI on them is just
    reta.. ..another one of those frustrating design decisions >_<

    and having just parts of one app (Outlook) with it while the main view
    doesn't is even worse. ugh

  6. I know - but Andre's right - there's no need for the Ribbon as it'll just be
    wasted space. Visio is different - it's got many menu options, but you need
    more space for the designing you see, that's why they haven't implemented it
    there.

  8. LOL - doubt they've even thought that much about the 14's, let alone the 13
    series of Microsoft Office ;o)

    This is dumb; Outlook and OneNote are the apps that'll be staying on and
    Ya think? I use almost everything else on my machine more than Outlook and
    One Note. We don't all have the same usage patterns ...
