Offer Options for the Office 365 Ribbon Appearance
I am disappointed with the appearance of the new Office 365 ribbon. I use a desktop and a laptop and find the monotone look and the over simplistic icons confusing and hard to read. These look like changes, just for the sake of change.
Options to revert to earlier versions that users were familiar with, would have been appreciated.
Just got the new ribbon today. Not only is it bad design and UI. It's completely distracting the eye. It is unbelievable how you can even think of using an icon design like that - it is the worst I have ever seen. Where is the "change back" option?

Look and feel should never override usability. I agree 300% (gave it 3 votes). It would be great if they would reintroduce the full customization options of earlier versions that allowed for customized icons, etc.

Please go back to ribbon icons that are easier to see!! These thin, almost invisible lines are unproductive and annoying. Listen to your customers, please.
100% agree! The new icons are driving me nuts!
