What would it take to modify the Windows Start menu on every Windows user machine in less than a week? That’s the question Microsoft is asking itself as it pushes to speed up Windows releases to compete with rivals like Chrome OS, Android, and iOS. In a new job listing, the company is looking for a developer to join the Windows Mission Control team to modernize how the operating system is released and delivered to customers. Microsoft has also released Windows 8.1 and Windows 8.1 Update to add more features over the course of the operating system’s short lifecycle, and some recent improvements to Internet Explorer during monthly patch releases. Alongside this, Microsoft has been delivering operating system updates extremely fast on a device you might not even realize runs Windows: Xbox One.
