Windows 8 MetroUI OOBE shown off on video [Update]

With the recent leak of Windows 8 build 7955, we expect more information about Microsoft's upcoming operating system to surface. That trend continues today as we were tipped by @alexerax (who said more updates in the near future) about a new video that shows the out of box experience for the Metro UI. The video shows the basic setup of a wireless network and a little bit more.

The video, shown below, comes from the recently leaked build 7955 and provides a glimpse at Microsoft's new Metro UI. Microsoft is incorporating this design language across many of its products and the video shows an early look at the new interface.

Windows 8 is far off from public availability and it is rumored that a public beta may be announced at PDC later this year. It is expected that Microsoft will launch Windows 8 in late 2012 with the latest rumors suggesting that retail availability will happen in early 2013.

Thanks for the tip Xerax

[Update] It appears that Microsoft has gotten to the video as it has now been pulled from YouTube.
