Office 2008 for Mac

It's great to know that the "Ribbon" paradigm of Office 2007 will also be used in the next Office version for the Mac, the Intel-compatible Office 2008, to be released much later this year. (I say it's great not because I use a Mac, I don't, but because today is a day of very interesting Apple news and I'm just the kind of person who thinks that's great.) The only thing I didn't get was, at least from what I've seen, the ugly hybrid of the old and new Office UI, what with a toolbar above the Ribbon-like elements. Still, it's pretty eye-candy, and they have lots of time to polish the UI.
