    Didn't see the need to change the whole interface

    Tree Menu is in the past i'm afraid! The new interface certainly takes a little getting use to, but you'll grow to love it (maybe)

    It's fairly easy for skin makers to create a version of the default skin with a tree menu replacing the tabs so I'm sure there will be one available eventually

    I didn't like the tree being removed at first but navigation is so much easier and quicker than the past. It'll take about 1/2 hours to get used to it.

    Indeed it is. I don't like the new layout but then I haven't really played the game yet.

    I expect to get used to it after a while.

    I'm hearing all sorts on various forums.

    Can we get an official word that when the full game is released there will be an option for the tree menu skin? or will be an option on steam

    There already has been an official word.

    If you don't use STEAM, you won't be able to use that skin.

    If you do, you will get the skin with the tree menu.

    You will get an fm10 version of the fm09 skin with STEAM. I'm pretty sure it comes without a tree menu though I can't be 100% certain

    There are also extra benefits this year from installing via STEAM. One of these will be a STEAM exclusive skin, which is an updated version of the FM09 skin (including tree menu) which will be available a few weeks after launch.

    So I buy the game from the shop and activate it through steam, will that work?

    Or is it only availible for people who download it straight from steam?

    If you use STEAM at any point, you will get the skin.

    Although if what Robbie says is right, it may not be as much like the FM09 skin as I thought...

    To be fair to Robbie S he's not seen what the skin is going to be like as it's not finished yet

    And to clarify it will look like the default skin in Football Manager 2009 but updated in places to support the new screens in FM 2010. Things like the Calendar bar are not included on it.

    I'm getting lost with the new interfere. It takes me longer than most to get used to a new skin.

    I'll be switching to the FM09 skin if I don't get used to it for a while. It's like night and day switching between FM09 and FM10 demo.

    I was lost for a while, but once I got engrossed in tactics and match days I didn't even notice that I was finding my way around the layout without thinking.

    If you ACTIVATE with Steam , you get this 'steam' theme , I think it will be pasted on the web somewhere though for download.

    I've got a good 3-4 hours of play time in tonight, and I'm still not fully used to it.

    I will admit that I can slowly feel myself adjusting to it though. Within a week or two it'll be hard to go back to the old style.
