Creating a Ribbon in Visual Studio 2013

I have several applications that I have used menu strips to provide for the segregation of functional areas in my application. I'd really like to use the ribbon control, since it appears that Microsoft is going to keep using it and it has become familiar to the user community.
Does anyone have any tips or know of any tutorials that give more information on how to implement them? Is the ribbon only available for WPF or can you use it in Windows forms as well?

I never did it myself but as far as I know it is possible.
Unfortunately rules here do not allow posting here links to some sites, so try to google:
"Easily Add a Ribbon into a WinForms Application (C#)". It's a good walk through.

anarki,
I have actually experimented with that one but really don't like the way it looks.

There is another option. You may find a ready-to -use control here:

and a newer version:

Code is free and open source. But probably it's not that easy to go through the code to get ideas...
