Microsoft Corp. on Friday announced that its much-anticipated code-named Longhorn operating system (OS) will be called Windows Vista. The software giant also assured that the OS will be available as soon as next year, but declined to tell when exactly.

Microsoft said on its web-site that Windows Vista enables a new level of confidence in a PC, introduces clear ways to organize and use information and seamlessly connect a PC to information, people, and devices that may be needed. The claim may reflect the OS’ security, performance and connectivity capabilities.

Windows Longhorn is set to utilize numerous hardware capabilities as well, including new features of graphics processing units and central processing units, Microsoft earlier indicated.

Windows Vista Beta1, targeted at developers and IT professionals, will be available by August 3rd, 2005, according to Microsoft. The actual product is currently scheduled at Summer 2006 release, after a number of beta versions and release candidates will be issued this and next year.
