Good god no, not more overuse of white and terrible ribbon patterns. No offence intended but the overuse of white in Office is bad enough, seeing it in Windows would be horrible.
I never really saw anything wrong with white space, it's a common design element. If the interface doesn't need lines to make sense, I see no reason to put them in. Besides, having a different color background for the ribbon may just lead to readability issues.
I did try to combat the whitewash with a watermark though, and in my concept, it's the watermark used in Start Screen. That way, they have a common element to them.

I'm not a Metro fan but at least, these screenshots are all Metro. Not the half-metro half-Aero crap Microsoft made with Windows 8's desktop.
Well, I can't really make you like Metro, but I'm glad you at least think my concept is consistent. :-)
