Sure I can minimize the tool strip, but it doesn't spell out a bunch of functionalilty easy to find in the old menu bar.
Ribbons may be fine for selling Windows into elementary school, but Matlab is for professionals, not for kids learning to tweet and update their timeline.
And how is this "better"? Yes that's a rhetorical question... What a UI disaster.
So I have to write my request on the back of a $20 bill and mail it to MatLab Plaza? ;^))
