I really really really like my netbook, it is so convenient, especially when traveling and not having a lot of space. But one of the things that is missing is screen real estate, especially on the vertical. My Ubuntu and the Gnome GUI make good use of what's available as the icons and window frames are smaller than on MS Windows. But even with MS Windows, working with a netbook should be o.k. But what about Microsoft Office that uses a ribbon interface instead of the traditional menu / icons on top of the window? The height of the ribbons costs precious vertical space and as far as I know there's no way to change that!? So I wonder if Microsoft at some point will come with a netbook / small screen optimized UI for its Office suite!?
What about you, how do you feel about 'ribbons' on smaller screens?
