Another leak releated to Windows 8 has landed on the Internet. First, there's an image showing the new language explorer feature that will be included in the next version of Windows.

The latest image from Canouna shows that you can now sort languages by name, region, or writing system -- this feature has been in the builds of Windows 8 all the way back to M1. It would appear that Microsoft is going to support more languages out of the box rather than having to download languages updates like in Windows 7. But, the additional languages could be included in these early builds for testing purposes only and may not ship with the final product.

Also note, that Windows 8 will have a new 'Aero Lite' theme. A screenshot leaked on Twitter show the file structure for a new visual theme 'Aero lite". The tweet states that "generally, Windows 8 [aero lite] theme looks a lot like Metro UI in some parts.

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.
