    First Windows 8 M3 screenshots of Aero Lite UI


    The very first screenshots of Windows 8 running on the Aero Lite UI have finally surfaced. At first glance, you may not notice much difference. You can click on the screenshots to enlarge them.

    You will notice right away that there is a much “flatter” look, similar to the Metro UI seen on Windows Phone 7. Only some of the Metro UI elements revealed yesterday are found in these screenshots. For example, the back and forward buttons remain default, but the set of buttons in the top-right hand corner of almost every Windows has sported the “Metro UI” look. It is likely that the Aero Lite UI is still being worked on.

    In addition to these screenshots, winreview.ru also suggested that this may be the new basic Aero theme – drawn from the conclusion of the name. Features such as Aero Peek and Window Thumbnails are still preserved.

    Although these screenshots may not be overly exciting, these screenshots give us further confirmation of the rumors and leaks we have recently witnessed.

    At this moment, Windows 8 RTM estimates are still sketchy, with most clues hinting towards a date sometime in 2012.

    Also, a new UI is supposed to be announced soon. And by announced I mean info leaked

    I find it interesting how the theme is called Windows 7 Basic in the screenshot.

    Even funnier, the leaker's name is found in one of the folders on the desktop. Let's hope that's not really his name or no more leaks for a while xD

    He's not the origin of the leak, so we're good

    I have a theory about the "leaked" versions. MS doesn't care, and may in fact encouage it to a point. What better way to test a proposed feature than to get it into the hands of the real computer enthusiasts. I went thru the Vista and 7 betas/leaks and am convinced there is some truth to my theory. I call it the Leak But Deny Theory.

    Oh look, a black helicopter.

    Actually I think they do care this time because they are doing something really crazy and new, and they dont want their competitors to know (Apple.) That is why we are seeing such a lame screenshot, the real UI is locked.
