“Windows is back!”: Microsoft is planning a major UI modernization

Apple surprised macOS Big Sur at the 2020 WWDC with a completely redesigned user interface. According to the latest reports, Microsoft seems to be planning a similarly far-reaching change to the Windows UI and is looking for qualified personnel. A recently published job advertisement by the company for the position of “Senior Software Engineer” contains indications of the redesign. There have been plans for design changes in Windows for a long time, but the changes are expected to be even more extensive than originally assumed – and will be implemented this year.
