Of course here is what Airgid said on his blog as well:

"I’m not a creature [of] change, or more likely I don’t like learning new
UI’s when I’m comfortable with the ones I use. But after using the “ribbon”
for a while I can see how it would speed up your work flow."

Interesting that you left off the very next quote from him, which said:

"The user interface really does take a while to get used to, but I
definitely feel smarter and more motivated to work in an environment like
this (as corny as it sounds),"

Which is a very positive remark, unlike the appearance of a negative mark
you imply by not including the rest of it.

If this is the worst you can come up with, you're going to have a hard sell
on Open Office.
