This is a pretty ignorant review....

And you will still know how.  The new interface doesn't get in the way of
existing knowledge.  Office still works the same way, with most of the same
dialogs, and the same functionality.  It's just easier to find stuff now.

While there's some merit to this argument, it is basically complaining that
the whole thing isn't the new ribbon?  What bout the previous argument?
Suddenly the old interface is bad?

"Frankly, who needs the hassle" is the comment.  This ignores the fact that
you often had to do this anyways because older versions of Word couldn't
read newer versions formats.  This is nothing that wasn't already a problem
in the last version.  However, going forward this won't be a problem
anymore as older versions that understand OXML will be able to read newer
versions of the format.

This one doesn't make any sense.  I've never heard of macros breaking in
newer versions, except when they introduced the switch to disable them
unless you allow them.

This is just pure FUD.
