I'm glad to hear that this philosophy is shared widely.  It is always best to know how to actually interact with any given operating system or piece of application software using its native interface.  And unless you believe the only computer you'll ever use is your own, it makes jumping on to another so much easier when you already know how without using unnecessary intermediary software.

The ribbons are menus, they simply have a slightly different traversal interface.  Once you know how to traverse them . . .
