Josh Einstein’s Outlook Ribbon Interface

If you’re one of those who wished Microsoft had been consistent across the Microsoft Office 2007 suite of applications and added the Ribbon Interface to Outlook, you might want to take a look at this work in progress.

Josh Einstein, the amazing developer of Tablet Enhancements for Outlook (TEO 3.0) has been tinkering with a Ribbon for Outlook. In the GBM Fourms, he’s announced that he’s put up a version for those who want to take a look at this and, most importantly, to give him some feedback.



Here’s a link to the download and here a part of what Josh has to say:

Treat this as experimental code. It won’t blow up Outlook but it’s not exactly in the most usable state right now. Because it hides the menu bar and toolbar and replaces it with a ribbon that does not yet have all the functionality it’s replacing, some commands are simply not available. Most of the stuff on the main tab works and that’s about it.
