So What Will The Next Windows Offer

If you’re interested in what the recent beta of the next Windows release (Windows “Vista”) will have, here is an interesting review from just a few days ago: Reviews :: Microsoft Windows Vista Codename ‘Longhorn’, Beta 1.
The answer so far appears to be, “Not much.” After all, the graphical changes and other alterations mentioned in the review would amount to the kinds of things we see in the regular six month release of Fedora Core. They certainly wouldn’t be treated as a major improvement to the OS worthy of a new name and an all new box with an all new price tag.
Perhaps we’ll see a lot more stuff included between now and the end of next year. If not, Apple’s move to the Intel platform and a steadily improving Linux platform could put a sudden sideways jog in the upgrade path of a lot of existing Windows customers.
