Funny thing but I have the same feelings seeing the multistorey clutter of stacked menu rows. I stopped using Microsoft Office 15 years ago (yes, in 2000) switching to Open Office and later to LibreOffice. I never looked back.
I realized how much I do not need this application when I bought recently a PC with a preinstalled Microsoft Office. I deleted it without switching it on, even once. I have no idea why people are paying money for something which offers them no advantage comparing to free software.
