Not too long ago I put together a screencast which aims to introduce Mac users who haven’t played with Terminal or command lines before and try and explain some of the initial concepts and to get doing a few things.
I’m not a fan of the new ‘Ribbon’ interface that debuted in Office 2007. I have been playing around with the new beta of Office 2010, where the Ribbon is now the standard user interface across the suite.
In this short screencast rant, I explain why I just don’t like this new user interface and how I don’t think it actually solves the issue it was designed to solve.
Apologies for the poor resolution and audio quality of this screencast; in future screencasts done using this method I’ll be sure to optimise things better.
Comments here or over on YouTube are welcome. I realise many people are happy with, or even passionate about the new Ribbon for good reasons too. I just can’t see how it does any good, yet requires extensive retraining of users!
