Microsoft Corp., the world’s largest developer of software, plans to unveil more details regarding its Windows 7 operating system and even provide select software developers pre-beta versions of the forthcoming OS in late October at its Professional Developers Conference.

Microsoft recently announced that at this year’s PDC, keynote attendees will be among the first to receive the pre-beta build of Windows 7.  Additionally, attendees will have the opportunity to attend 21 different sessions that drill down into the details of developing for Windows 7.

Microsoft claims that advances in Windows 7 have been made across the full range of the operating system, including the kernel, networking, hardware and devices, and user-interface. 

Attendees of the conference will be able to learn more about opportunities to build on the platform’s commitment to OS fundamentals. Besides, the company indicated that the new operating system will enable software developers to enhance existing applications and create new applications that use the new technologies and APIs in Windows 7. The company plans to present Windows 7-related keynote on the 28th of October, 2008, at PDC.

According to previously reported information, 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.

Good to see MS stepping up this go-around. Hopefully Win7 will be a decent release.
