Zoho 2.0: The Most Microsoft-y Zoho Yet!

According to their company blog, Zoho 2.0 has just been released, and I have the exact same first impression as Frederic Lardinois over at ReadWriteWeb – it looks a whole lot like Word 2007:

Clearly, this new interface, dubbed the MenuTab by Zoho, was inspired by Microsoft’s Ribbon interface, which is slowly becoming the standard interface paradigm for Microsoft applications. Zoho smartly keeps the most often used functions like undo/redo, copy, cut, paste, and save outside of these tabs so that they are always available (something MS Office also does thanks to the Quick Access Toolbar). In our tests, the MenuTab worked just as advertised, and if you are comfortable with the MS Office 2007 interface, you will feel right at home in the new Zoho Writer.
