At first i was iffy on the ribbon, but the more i used it i started thinking boy would this be great for my app.

Now i tend to use it quite exclusively.

Currently i use the ComponentFactory Krypton Suite and it has a great and easy to use Ribbon Control.

as for the screen space it takes, yeah it can seem to be space hungry on lower resolutions, but minimizing the ribbon works in those cases quite well. Once minimized a properly developed ribbon will act allot like a Normal Menu.

Straw Poll

On which operating systems are you writing code?
Let's see if things have changed since we last ran this. "writing code" meaning editing, building, and running the code on that OS.
