2009 UI Still Lives!!!

I personally am quite happy with the Ribbon, particularly with the new enhancements.

But out of curiousity, I just thought I would see if the Classic UI is still alive in 2011 – and it is!

It'sjust debatable whether it's suitablefor complex programs like Revit- butAutodesk has done a good job with itfor 2011.
