Please bear with me if this isn't how we post to this mailing list-- I'll
admit it's my first time contributing.

Recently, I was looking at two mockups posted to OMGUbuntu and WebUpd8
regarding LibreOffice's design.  One was for a Ribbon style, the other for a
sidebar design.

Personally, I couldn't get behind the sidebar design.  When I used KOffice,
I found it was eating up a lot of screen real-estate, and especially by
splitting half the UI elements between the sidebar and the top bar, negated
many advantages of Fitt's Law by requiring I track multiple active zones.

I cobbled together a very basic mockup of a streamlined interface using the
web demo of Balsamic-- I don't have resources to go much further.  But if
it's actually interesting to anyone, please let me know.
