Microsoft Corp., the world’s largest developer of software, reportedly intends to release its next-generation operating system in mid-2009, much earlier than previously anticipated.

According to a news-story at InternetNews.com, the software giant plans to unveil its Windows 7 OS on the 3rd of June, 2009, which is inline with claims of Bill Gates made earlier this year, but is about half a year earlier than Microsoft publicly stated. The new operating system is expected to correct all the issues with Windows Vista, which has been heavily criticized.

The news-story reads that  Microsoft will use its Professional Developer's Conference in late October as the launch platform for the first public beta of Windows 7. Microsoft plans to unveil the first beta on October 27, the first day of the show, when chief software architect Ray Ozzie will be the keynote speaker.

Some hardware and software makers have already received early builds of Windows 7 to evaluate performance and prepare their drivers or programs compatible with the new OS.

Microsoft did not comment on the news-story.
