Charles mentioned that "choice is best" ... that is true if people
really know what they want and how to adapt something in their given

doesn't fall into that category :-) So to prepare an interaction concept
that it works right from the start for most people, that is the real
hard part.

So allow for three 'modes':

1. Legacy (the current Menus/Toolbars style),

2. Newfangled (ribbon, or whatever it is to be called),


3. Custom (allows the user to basically mix/match and customize whatever
they want), with a big fat scary warning with a default of NO/CANCEL,
that will prevent any casual user from enabling it...
