The introduction of the Ribbon seems to driven by forces external to Revit. The UI elements it replaces are not the ones that needed attention. The toolbar and design bar were compact and simple. The project browser OTOH is crowded and inflexible. And what about some real time parameter editing instead of the rather primitive properties dialogs?

It’s not that I don’t like the Ribbon. It just appears that it consumed all of your resources this cycle (OK more like half), which is somewhat disappointing considering Revit’s many more pressing needs.

Thank you Geoff,
Some known items can be addressed opportunistically while others require dedicated resources and careful planning. As an example in 2009 a project unified open and save dialogs. Prior to this dozens of unique layouts existed for the same operation creating a very inconsistent experience.
2010 has addressed other known issues that may take some time to notice.
Rest assured we will continually improve and are always collecting additional data on work flow and usage.
