"We just finished up work on Windows 7, and are pushing forth on Windows 8 planning and preparation," said the blurb in the job ad, which was replicated on the CodenameWindows website.

"As part of this team, you will help shape Windows 8. Components of our code include a core agent that runs as an NT service, an API layer and a UI application," added the advert.

Last month, Robert Morgan of Microsoft's research and development team accidentally detailed some of the software giant's plans for Windows 8, and even Windows 9, on business networking site LinkedIn.
