windows8-microsoft_techfever_techfieber by you.Redmond macht Druck: Das neue Betriebssystem „Windows 7“ ist noch längst nicht fertig, da arbeitet Microsoft bereits am „Windows 7“-Nachfolger „Windows 8“.

Dies ergibt sich aus einer Stellenanzeige, die der Softwarekonzern auf seinen internen „Career“-Seiten (siehe Kopie der Stellenanzeige unten) gepostet hat.

Demnach suchen die Microsofties einen „Lead Software Development Engineer in Test“ für laufende „Windows 7“-Projekte sowie für „major improvements for Windows 8“, wie es in der Stellenanzeige heißt.

Nach wie vor gibt es noch nicht mal einen offiziellen Starttermin für den sehnlichst erwarteten Windows-Vista-Nachfolger „Windows 7“. Verschiedenen Berichten zufolge könnte der „Windows 7 Release Candidate“ (RC) ab dem 5. Mai zum Download bereit stehen.

Auf einer Microsoft-Partner-Seite stand für einige Stunden ein Downloadhinweis auf den Release Candidate von Windows 7 mit diesem Datum. Dies würde bedeuten, dass die Vorab-Version von „Windows 7“ dann für die Allgemeinheit zum Ausprobieren bereitstehen würde.

Seitens Microsoft ist dies jedoch nicht bestätigt worden.
