Aero comes from Greek and means air.
Aero (short for aerodynamics): In physics and engineering, "aero" often refers to aerodynamics, which is the study of the movement of air and other gases. Aerodynamics is important in areas such as aerospace, automotive engineering and wind energy.
Aero (food): "Aero" is also a brand of chocolate products known for its airy, foam-like structure. Aero chocolate is made by injecting gas bubbles into the chocolate to create a lighter texture.

"Windows Aero" was a user interface developed by Microsoft for some versions of their Windows operating system. It was first introduced in Windows Vista and developed further in later versions such as Windows 7. Aero offered a range of graphical effects and features including:
Glass and Transparency Effects: The window frames had a glass-like look with transparency that made the visual appearance of the UI more appealing.
Aero Flip and Aero Peek: Aero Flip allowed you to quickly scroll through open windows in 3D, while Aero Peek temporarily displayed the contents of the desktop when you hovered over the desktop icon in the taskbar.
The Aero interface was developed by Microsoft to improve the usability and visual appeal of Windows. However, with Windows 8, Aero was largely replaced and the user interface underwent a fundamental change. In Windows 8 and later versions, the Modern UI (also known as the Metro interface) plays a larger role, and the transparent effects and glass look of Aero have been discontinued.
Windows Aero is a graphical user interface and skin for the Windows operating system. Windows Aero is included and standard with most editions of Windows Vista and Windows 7. Aero also uses transparency effects for windows and the taskbar, making the desktop appear more dynamic and attractive. Aero fundamentally changed the Windows user interface and was way ahead of its time. However, the hardware requirements for Aero were relatively high, so it could not be used on all computers.
