Microsoft Office Ribbon
Can I use a ribbon which look like Microsoft office 2007 one, that I wrote by myself?
You mean, like, from a legal point of view? As far as I know Microsoft has tried patenting it and has run a few scare tactics with letting people sign "free" (as in beer) licenses. However, I don't think they have a (valid) patent.
