Microsoft job postings confirm more about Windows and Windows Phone Blue

ZDNET: If there's any doubt that the Windows client team is laser-focused on the coming Blue refresh of Windows 8, a new Microsoft job post makes it even plainer.

A February 15 post for a software development engineer in test on the Microsoft Careers site (to which Charon at Ma-config.com alerted me), 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. (Microsoft, Software, Windows 8)

I hope the Blue update to Windows 8 reinstates the RGB type font rendering API.
The grey-scale font anti-aliasing used by the Modern UI, IE10 and Office 2013 is a massive step backwards for desktop PC users. Blurry fonts are simply inexcusable in any operating system.
