In 2019, LibreOffice's Design community @liboDesign worked on the NotebookBar user interface, along with menus, icons, the sidebar, a "Tip of the dialog" box dialog and much more.

@dheadshot It's not a "copy" – the NotebookBar has some fundamental differences, and is available in various configurations. And anyway, it's totally optional and made by volunteers – if you don't like it, just don't use it!
@libreoffice I like the tabbed/ribbon interface. It's way better, both in usability and for productivity. You should pretty much make it the standard.
@laila @libreoffice There is quite a bit of debate over that as far as I know. While I think it's understandable for different people to have different tastes, #LibreOffice should make it more clear to new users that different UIs are available for it. Perhaps, a 'first-run wizard' that asks which UI you want to use might be a great way to achieve this.
