I hate the ribbon - give me my old menus back

I hate the ribbon.  It is slow and a waste of time. Is Office 2010 going to give me any option to have my old, faster, more understandable menus back or if I upgrade am I stuck with the #$%#$ ribbon?  If I am stuck with the ribbon, then I don't want to purchase 2010 but will go buy a 2003 and install it on my new Windows 7 machine.  Can anyone tell me if I am stuck if I get Office 2010?
