Are menus dead?

I downloaded Office 2010 and have been fiddling with Excel and found the UI to be excellent. However, unless I'm missing it, menus are nowhere to be found. Are they done?

"Office has menus. It's just it uses the ribbion interface. This means everything is avaialble in the same vertical and hoizontal space.

If anything, Office is taking the route that they way we use menus is changing. Not the fact menus are dead.

Another example is Firefox. They are lookng for new ways of handling many tabs in one screen. Whatever method hey choose, it's still menus and tabs."
