    Hey Dude , Read the News

    Microsoft announced the product lineup of its upcoming Windows Vista operating system.

    Scheduled for release later this year, the Microsoft Windows Vista product lineup will help

    users easily accomplish everyday tasks, instantly find what they want, enjoy the latest in

    entertainment, improve the safety of their personal information, stay connected at home or

    on the go, and help ensure PCs are up-to-date, more secure and running smoothly.

    The Windows Vista product lineup consists of six versions, two for businesses, three for

    consumers, and one for emerging markets: Windows Vista Business, Windows Vista Enterprise,

    Windows Vista Home Basic, Windows Vista Home Premium, Windows Vista Ultimate and Windows

    Vista Starter. The number of offerings is the same as the number of offerings currently

    available for Windows XP. More important, the lineup is designed to deliver clear value to

    a broad range of customers, each product tailored to meet specific needs of various

    segments of customers — home PC users, small and medium-sized businesses and the largest

    enterprises — and is aimed at bringing 64-bit, Media Center and Tablet PC functionality

    into the mainstream.

    Business customers can choose from two versions that are designed to meet their needs,

    based on the size and scale of their organizations:

    Business Customers

    Windows Vista Business. Windows Vista Business is the operating system designed for

    organizations of all sizes. For small businesses, Windows Vista Business will help keep PCs

    running smoothly and more securely so they are less reliant on dedicated IT support. For

    larger organizations, Windows Vista Business will provide dramatic new infrastructure

    improvements that will enable IT staff to spend less time focused on day-to-day maintenance

    of PCs and more time on adding strategic value to the organization. These are some of the

    specific features of Windows Vista Business:

    A new user interface, named Windows Aero, is designed to deliver the most productive,

    highest-performing desktop experience possible. Windows Aero will provide a

    professional-looking, transparent glass design, with subtle effects such as dynamic

    reflections and smooth animations, along with Windows Flip and Flip 3D desktop navigation

    features.

    In addition to these navigation improvements, Windows Vista Business makes it easier than

    ever to manage huge volumes of business documents. By integrating search throughout the

    operating system and providing new ways to organize files, Windows Vista Business helps

    business users quickly find exactly what they are looking for.

    Windows Tablet PC technology provides built-in handwriting recognition and enables

    interaction with the PC with a digital pen or fingertip instead of a keyboard.


    Windows Vista Enterprise. To better address the needs of large global organizations and

    those with highly complex IT infrastructures, Windows Vista Enterprise is designed to

    significantly lower IT costs and risk. In addition to all the features available in Windows

    Vista Business, Windows Vista Enterprise is designed to provide higher levels of data

    protection using hardware-based encryption technology. It will also include tools to

    improve application compatibility and will enable organizations to standardize on a single

    worldwide deployment image with the inclusion of all Windows user-interface languages.

    Windows Vista Enterprise will be available only to customers who have PCs covered by

    Microsoft Software Assurance or a Microsoft Enterprise Agreement. These are some of the

    specific Windows Vista Enterprise features:

    Windows BitLocker Drive Encryption helps prevent sensitive data and intellectual property

    from falling into the wrong hands if a computer is lost or stolen.

    Virtual PC Express is one of several built-in tools that improve application compatibility

    with previous versions of Microsoft operating systems. Virtual PC Express enables a legacy

    application to run unchanged on a legacy Windows operating system in a virtual environment

    on top of Windows Vista Enterprise.

    Subsystem for UNIX-based Applications enables users to run UNIX applications unchanged on a

    Windows Vista Enterprise-based PC.

    The new user interface Windows Aero is also available in this edition of Windows Vista.

    Home Users

    Consumers can choose from three versions that deliver exciting new experiences for the home

    PC user:

    Windows Vista Home Basic. Windows Vista Home Basic is a great choice for homes with basic

    computing needs. For consumers who want to simply use the PC to browse the Internet,

    correspond with friends and family through e-mail or perform basic document creation and

    editing tasks, Windows Vista Home Basic will deliver a safer, more reliable and more

    productive computing environment. It will provide new tools and technologies for making the

    PC more secure and enjoyable, including features such as a new Search Explorer, Sidebar and

    Parental Controls.

    Windows Vista Home Premium. Windows Vista Home Premium will help consumers use mobile or

    desktop PC functionality more effectively while enabling the enjoyment of new, exciting

    digital entertainment experiences. Windows Vista Home Premium improves every aspect of

    digital entertainment experiences, including photos, video, TV, movies, music and games.

    Windows Vista Home Premium includes everything in Windows Vista Home Basic, along with

    additional features and enhancements such as the following:

    The new user interface Windows Aero is also available in this edition of Windows Vista.

    Windows Vista Home Premium integrates search throughout the operating system, helping

    customers easily organize and quickly find large collections of documents, pictures,

    movies, videos and music.

    Windows Media Center capabilities turn the PC into an all-in-one home entertainment center.

    Consumers can use Media Center to record and watch TV shows (even high-definition TV) and

    access new kinds of online entertainment content. It also provides the ability to connect

    Windows Vista Home Premium to Xbox 360â„¢, extending the Media Center experience to multiple

    rooms in the home.

    Windows Tablet PC technology, which enables interaction with the PC with a digital pen or

    fingertip instead of a keyboard, is also available in this edition of Windows Vista.

    Integrated DVD burning and authoring allows users to seamlessly burn personal videos photos

    and files to video or data DVDs, and easily create professional-looking DVDs from home

    movies that can be shared with family and friends.

    Windows Vista Ultimate. Windows Vista Ultimate is the edition of Windows Vista that has it

    all. It is the first operating system that brings together all the entertainment features,

    mobility features and business-oriented features available in Windows Vista.

    All new versions are available for either 32-bit or 64-bit systems, depending on the needs

    of the customer. Windows Vista Home Basic, Home Premium, Ultimate and Business will be

    available as a full-packaged product at retail and on new PCs. Windows Vista Enterprise

    will be offered only to business customers participating in Microsoft’s Software Assurance

    program.

    Microsoft also will offer Windows Vista Starter in emerging markets. Windows Vista Starter

    is designed to empower families and entry-level PC users in these markets to experience the

    world of social and educational benefits that personal computer technology and the Internet

    makes possible. A 32-bit operating system designed specifically for lower-cost computers,

    Windows Vista Starter enables popular beginner PC activities and provides an easy-to-use

    and more affordable entry point to the Windows Vista family of products.

    All versions of Windows Vista are scheduled to be broadly available in the second half of

    2006.

    Bill Gates said we sold 99 millions copy of Windows Vista in a month Later.
