With a few modifications, Office 2013 would fit right in with the Whistler look.
I agree. At risk of sounding the rabid Windows 8 defenders, I think the new Office is visually a big step back. It looks like something I would install and use in 1996, but I guess old is new and new is old. Aero Glass was looking a bit long in the tooth, but I was a fan of the refined version of it in the DP and RC. But I really like the Whistler-like thing they have going now.
