It's not every day that a new Windows 8 image surfaces. While the image presented above does not reveal anything new, it is a second look at the upcoming improvements that Windows 8 will provide.

Ever since Windows 8 hit milestone 3, more users on various forums have been reporting that they have finally been issued a version of the platform for testing purposes. This is good news as it means with more testers, more potential leaks are possible.

These latest images come courtesy of MDL and the two pictures represent what the taskbar will look like in Windows 8. The updated taskbar will include the Windows Live ID login and the image in the bottom right will show which user is currently logged in. While not much else is added by these additional screenshots, they come from a new user who appears to be a bit more liberal in releasing images.

With a bit of luck, more screenshots could be hitting the web soon. Microsoft is working hard to keep the work on Windows 8 a secret, as denoted by the background images in the screenshots, but these images still managed to find their way on to the web.

Microsoft to bring 'Metro' look to Windows 8 with 'Aero lite' theme

Windows 8 will bring many things to the table with regards to new functionality and visual styles. While this is great for everyone with a modern machine, Microsoft does not want to leave out those with hardware that is not up to spec for the new visual queues.

A lot of information has been leaked on Twitter today, including a screenshot showing the file structure for a new visual theme 'Aero lite". The screenshot comes courtesy of @AngelWZR who states that "generally, Windows 8 [aero lite] theme looks a lot like Metro UI in some parts. It's very flat, as I can say looking to resources from it".

It shouldn't come as a major surprise that Microsoft will bring the 'Metro' look to Windows 8 as the company has been displaying that visual style on several of its interfaces. The 'Metro' look is set to become a staple of Microsoft products as they continue to build a brand around that visual style to help differentiate their products.

Since M2 has been completed and M3 builds have been produced, more users have gotten their hands on the platform. With more users having the platform, the likelihood of leaks grows exponentially which could lead to a full build leak in the near future.
