    Microsoft Vista open for business
    Microsoft,
    the world’s largest software maker, says it is giving businesses a
    preview of the next version of its operating system, Windows Vista.

    The new version is being tested with 500,000 customers, it said.
    The
    software, previously known by its code name Longhorn, is due for
    release towards the end of 2006, half a decade after the launch of
    Windows XP.
    Microsoft says the system will make it easier and less expensive for firms to keep their computer networks secure.
    Safety features
    The new system will feature safer web browsing with the inclusion of Internet Explorer version 7, the software giant said.
    Brad
    Goldberg, general manager for Windows product management, said Vista
    would allow people to log on to their office’s system remotely without
    needing to connect through a virtual private network, or VPN.
    Other features will include easier installation of software fixes, known as patches, to protect computers from viral attacks.
    Changes to user-account controls, it said, would make it harder for viruses to spread around office networks.
    Once Vista hits the market it will be the longest gap between releases of Windows systems.
