There is nothing quite like a job posting to reveal information on upcoming projects, as we have seen that happen time and again in the past. Well, one of the more recent job postings by Microsoft did claim that Windows Blue will include user experience improvements, apart from just interface tweaks that happen underneath the proverbial hood. Not only that, there was also a reference to ‘Windows Phone Blue’ spotted on Microsoft’s job site, now how about that?
This should be taken as a surefire confirmation that the Windows client team is currently working on the upcoming Blue refresh of Windows 8. In the job posting, the Core Experience team in Windows Sustained Engineering (WinSE) which is said to be heavily involved in making improvements to the start screen, application lifecycle, windowing and personalization, will also improve on the mentioned operating system components in Windows Blue. An excerpt of the job description reads as follows :
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.
