@GP007
this is exacly what I think.

They should drop all shadows of elements inside a window.
Current concept – office route – image gallery

I know, it is off-topic, but I wanted to show my first concept of office analog the office route of windows 8 file explorer:

I made the ribbon gray and separated by white 1px lines.
Some lines around the ribbons and the window I kicked off and I added the Windows 8 scrollbar.

Office is much better designed than file explorer so I had not very much to change.
The category names of the ribbons should probably be uppercase. We'll see.

That's really nice. I really have nothing bad to say about the Office concept.

However, the taskbar seems out of the place, and a bit inconsistent with the rest of the interface.

This sounds great! I can deliver icons in Png format. I will work on the office route. Next step is to get more office icons.
Yes, the taskbar has to be opimized. The question is what and how :-)

The easiest part should be the taskbar and explorer UI to modify, modifying office is kinda hard I can't be sure if thats possible.
