Restore the option to hide the status bar and/or provide a color scheme where no elements are the terrible blue color.
I have no idea why Microsoft removed the option to hide the status bar. It can be useful if you want it, but it takes up valuable screen space. Why remove a useful option? And even worse: both color schemes mean that you have to work with a distracting blue color--for "Colorful", it is the title bar and for the ribbon, but for the "Classic" the gray status bar turns blue. For god's sake, bring back a gray-non distracting theme--at least for draft mode!
