Microsoft names new software 'Windows Vista' Fri Jul 22,10:11 AM ET



SEATTLE (Reuters) - Microsoft Corp. (Nasdaq:MSFT - news) said on Friday it named the next version of its operating system "Windows Vista" as it prepares to release a trial version of the flagship software that already runs on nine out of 10 personal computers worldwide.

Windows Vista, formerly known by its code-name Longhorn, is scheduled to launch in the second half of 2006, five years after Windows XP, the longest time lag between releases of its Windows operating system.

Microsoft, the world's largest software maker, has promised numerous enhancements, including better security, graphics and computing over the Web.

Brad Goldberg, general manager of Windows product development at Microsoft, said the new name was aimed at "communicating the idea of clarity."

"That lets users focus on the things they need to focus on," Goldberg said.

More details on Vista will be released at a developer's conference in September, Goldberg said.

A beta, or test version, will be released by Aug. 3, Redmond, Washington-based Microsoft said in a statement.
