    I would like to make a request regarding the ribbon bar.

    I have been playing with the Office 2010 beta and besides the background "file" tab , I absolutely do NOT like the Ribbon bar. It looks like I imagine the Ribbon would have looked while it was still in development , a bland strip of grey with buttons and labels on top.
    It looks like the Telerik control would look if it had no border or fill primitives - Ie : flat boring and bland.

    Now I know Telerik always moves forward with the new trends but please , should you implement the new office 2010 ribbon style , please allow us to be able to select between the 2010 and 2007 styles .

    Even the background "File" tab which is really useful for huge nested config windows like print etc , they are only useful for that .
    For simple application menus on simple apps the old office button style is far more efficient and certainly far less intrusive.

    Moaning mostly at Microsoft here , but also pleading to the Telerik team for consideration to the future of the Telerik ribbon control development.

    Hello Antonio,

    Thanks for writing and for your comments. Indeed, we plan to implement Office 2010 UI in our RadRibbonForm/RadRibbonBar components. However, that does not imply that the old Office 2007 themes will be unavailable. Thanks for your feedback once again.
