In a recent job posting on the Microsoft Careers website there is an opening position for a ‘software development engineer’ to work on the upcoming update/release for the new Microsoft OS code named ‘Blue’.
“We’re looking for an excellent, experienced SDET to join the Core Experience team in Windows Sustained Engineering (WinSE). The Core Experience features are the centerpiece of the new Windows UI, representing most of what customers touch and see in the OS, including: the start screen; application lifecycle; windowing; and personalization. Windows Blue promises to build and improve upon these aspects of the OS, enhancing ease of use and the overall user experience on devices and PCs worldwide.”
Microsoft is also talking about annual updates and releases of it’s operating system which should help keep it more affordable. Just ask OS X users how much this is appreciated.
