Concur! In an upbeat mood, despite of not revealing many details to go on then, but still, it’s confirmation.
What We’re Seeing Now, for the very 1st time an official acknowledgement to Microsoft’s forthcoming operating system update “Windows Blue’ through a job advert on Microsoft’s careers site.
A job advert on the Microsoft Careers site (February 15) for a software development engineer who will join the “Core Experience team”, mentions “Windows Blue.” According to that posting, the Core Experience team in Windows Sustained Engineering (WinSE) is involved in making improvements to the start screen, application lifecycle, windowing and personalization. Windows Blue will “build on and improve” these OS components, the posting says.
Here’s an excerpt: 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.
In a 2nd job posting listed, also confirms that Microsoft will bring Blue to Windows Phone — a listing for a senior development lead in the Office team says that the applicant will “help realize the vision of building high quality excel app [sic] for Windows Phone Blue.”
Microsoft Blue is Microsoft’s upcoming operating system upgrade program that will bring low-cost yearly updates to it’s desktop, mobile operating system, and the Windows Services (like SkyDrive, Hotmail, etc)
