Microsoft to fundamentally change the way Windows ships

Neowin writes a new job posting at Microsoft's website reveals the software giant is preparing to fundamentally change the way Windows is shipping. The goal seems to be to roll out feature updates much faster than ever before. Previously we heard Microsoft may be adopting a yearly release schedule but this information suggests the company may even have weekly updates in mind.
According to a job posting on Microsoft's website, they are looking to "fundamentally change the way Windows is shipping." The job posting states the following:

The Mission Control team is seeking a strong developer to help advance the state of client software delivery. We are creating a new system that will fundamentally change the way Windows is shipping to put the ecosystem at the center of Windows. We want every engineer to get an immediate view of how he/she is affecting the Windows ecosystem by providing qualitative and quantitative information that will allow them to take the necessary decisions in real time.

There are many ways to interpret this, but it could go back to what we talked about previously where you can click a button in Windows 9 to update the builds internally. The reason this feature may make it outside of internal testing is because of what else the job description says:

What would it take to modify the Windows start menu on every Windows user machine in less than a week?
