    Windows 8 Faster, Smaller, and More Responsive than Windows 7


    Are you passionate about software performance? Are you excited by the potential to have a positive impact on hundreds of millions of users, by improving their Windows experience? The Windows Fundamentals Performance Test Team is look for a software design engineer who can help us do just that make future releases of Windows faster, smaller, and more responsive than Windows 7. OS Fundamentals, and specifically performance were a major area of focus during Windows 7 and will be just as important if not more so, during the development of the next version(s).

    We have built a mature performance testing infrastructure to analyze the behavior of the operating system under different tests and workloads, and detect performance bugs, and opportunities to improve performance. And now, we want to take that to the next level. Our role as a team is two-fold in that we are not only improving and enhancing our current infrastructure and test coverage, but we also provide technical leadership and guidance to partner teams to help them improve the performance testing and analysis of their own individual components. We are looking for an SDET that excel in both of those areas.

    Yeah I don’t think people are going to like this cloud based operating system.

    I certainly don't like the idea of being part of the cloud.

    I'm not comfortable with the cloud for home/personal aspects but can see where Enterprises will benefit.

    As to faster, more responsive -- I would think that is always an objective.

    I hope they make a PC based version of 8 so people have the option of going cloud if they want to.

    Hopefully we'll have an option to keep 'legacy' PC based OS/programs and have the cloud versions to choose from.

    I'm not to thrilled about have everything in the cloud.
