Hi all,

My conclusion is that no decision should be drawn based on guessing and
personal preferences.

Another aspect of this is that any preferences users might currently
hold tell us nothing about how well an interface eventually works for
users. All the current study tells us about is the acceptance of
ribbons v/ toolbars and menus. That basically translates to "How much
work the marketing/community people would have to do to successfully
sell the decision to go towards one or the other?".
I can't remember who said this where and when, but there is a quote
like: "to truly respect your users, you have to disrespect them." I.e.
look at how they work, not at how they think they (might want to)
