New Windows to be released at end of 2006

by Nikola Strahija on August 1st, 2005 Windows Vista won't be released until the end of 2006, a Microsoft executive let slip in a recent presentation on Microsoft's campus.


The next version of Windows was expected in the second half of 2006, but at a financial analyst conference in Washington, Microsoft senior VP Will Poole revealed it would not appear until the 2006 US holiday season.

Microsoft released the first beta of Windows Vista this week, and a demo of the new OS has shown some new features, including virtual folders and enhanced support for RSS.

The company revealed the official name of the client OS, formerly codenamed Longhorn, last week. The next version of Windows Server currently still retains the Longhorn codename, and is expected to be available in 2007.
