Windows 8 Help Wanted

Microsoft may be in the process of laying off 5,000 workers, but there's one area where Redmond can't get enough new employees: Windows 8.

The job postings reveal a smidge about new features, including clustering and replication. The replication is interesting as Notes creator Ray Ozzie is considered the father of modern replication. The ads also mention that "the core engine is being reworked," which is a very good thing. Some experts, however, are focusing on the term "rework" and believe there won't be a new core.
