Windows Live Mail and Photo Gallery Wave 4 Revealed: Ribbon UI

We told you that Neowin had gotten their hands on some screenshots of Wave 4 Messenger and Writer earlier this month. Now, at the doorstep of 2010, some (very early) screenshots of Wave 4 Windows Live Mail and Windows Live Photo Gallery emerged over at geeksmack.net.

In these screenshots we see that these applications also gained the ribbon interface (love it or hate it). They also posted more screenshots of the Wave 4 Windows Live Writer. In some of the screenshots orange circles appear, which, according to geeksmack, are placeholders. This means no icons have been made for these items yet. We are very curious what these will be replaced with.

We’ll keep you posted!
