After the Office 15 screenshot leaks, MSwin.me has posted an interesting image which shows the resource style images found at Windows 8 or Vnext’s C: \ Windows \ Resources \ Themes \ Aero new style – Aero Lite. The new style has some similarity to the much lauded Metro Design from Microsoft. Metro Design is currently part of Windows Phone 7, Zune, and Windows Media Center. As Steve Ballmer recently said that the lines between tablet and PC UI will blur soon, this may be the glimpse of what he intended. Will Microsoft make Metro, the design language for all its Operating Systems powering PC’s, Tablets, Mobile, Consoles,etc,.??
