Screenshots of an upcoming Windows App Store have been leaked online. The screenshots are from Windows 8, according to ZDNet.

From what we see here, it suggests one will be able to download a vast number of applications, ranging from games to office applications. With applications available like Opera and Angry Birds, it’s clear that Microsoft are following suit with other content providers by opening up to third-party applications.

ZDNet notes that the images resemble the Mac App Store, the Ubuntu Download Center, and Windows Media Player.

These images also explain why Microsoft is contesting Apple's trademark application for the term 'App Store'.

Microsoft has already very publicly fought Apple's attempt at trademarking the term "App Store" so clearly they are planning on naming it something along those lines.
