How To Bring Back the Old Menus in Office 2007
Using the new Ribbon feature in Office 2007 takes time to learn…time you don't have because projects are stacking up. Today we will look at UBitMenu, a utility that puts the familiar Office 2003 menu into the 2007 ribbon.
When I first tried Office 2007 it took a lot of frustrating time figuring out where all of the features were located. It is laid out much differently than previous versions of office. When the "pointy-haired bosses" require deadlines to be met you don't have time to learn where everything is. This is where UBitMenu comes in, it places the classic 2003 menu in as a new ribbon.

Wow... why would you want to revert back? Same reason people still want Win2000 style desktop interfaces?
Sure it takes lots of getting used to and some learning of how its arranged... but after learning it the interface change is much easier and quicker to use than the 2003 menu tree style. If anything that looks more confusing as they added new menus and moved things around.

Microsoft did screw up with the ribbon interface by not providing the classic menu anymore for those who want it.
btw this addon doesn't work for Word 2007 unfortunately
