Screenshots of Windows 8 Platform Leaked to the Web

It was only two weeks ago that Microsoft announced the public beta of its forthcoming OS platform Windows 8 would be made available during February 2012. And now, a new batch of leaked screenshots has surfaced that gives people a better idea of how the Windows 7 successor is supposed to look in its final build.

Earlier, the company said the beta version would be made available during the first month of the coming year. The company later confirmed the deadline would be missed by a month or so.

The newly leaked batch of screenshots comprises of 3 different images demonstrating the new Metro themed start page, the revamped InstallPep, and the new themes.

In addition, the leaked images also showcased multiple pre-installed apps such as Weather Beta, Paint, Photos, Videos and the Reader.

Also, from these screenshots, it becomes quite clear the Themes window will likely be significantly different from what users were provided in the Windows 7 platform. The Themes window may continue to change during beta testing.

The fresh batch of leaked screenshots was gifted to the Web community by technology site Win8China.com.
