This is Not Better, Microsoft

Sorry, Microsoft. This is not what I consider an improvement. You’ve Window-fied my Mac, but retained some Mac-ness to the point of creating some sin against nature you call Office for Mac 2011.

Also, no one uses Styles. No one. And only dim boobs use document themes. Please, lose the crap.

Seriously, look at all that stuff in Word: This doesn’t even include the required OS X menu bar! With that, they’re 18 (!) menus, 5 sub-menu category things (I think they call them “trays”) and a medley of icons up top that I have to guess at what they mean (seriously, what is that button directly to the right of “new document”?).

AND THEY STILL USE THAT FREAKING DISKETTE ICON FOR THE “SAVE” BUTTON!
