Vista Replacement or another Dump from Microsoft

News about Vista's forthcoming replacement has come to my awareness. The next version of Windows is so far called Windows Seven, the codename for Microsoft programs, has a tendency of changing throughout the development of new programs, for an example Vista used to be named Longhorn. The version of "Vista" is to be released in mid 2010, as announced by Microsoft them selves.

The important news is that as far as development efforts are concerned Vista is a closed book; Microsoft has begun moving towards their next great operating system, this of course leaves Vista to be a very slow paced project, further development or implementations to Vista, will be less or almost none existing.

At the time the Vista service pack is planned to get released in first quarter of 2008, alongside with this project in work, Microsoft has started building the contours of Windows 7. As earlier mentioned in this article, has announced the release date of Vistas replacement, the move is a deliberate attempt to try and force users into using Vista. Microsoft are currently working on implementing wireless network advances and include programs like Direct Connect, as component of the Windows 7 server edition.

It will be very exciting to see what kind of new implement Microsoft will deliver to the next operating system, lets hope it will be as good or better than the newest current version of Windows, Microsoft Windows Vista.
