Windows Vista still on track for 2006 release

Microsoft plans to ship beta 2 of its forthcoming Windows Vista operating system next year, the company said in a conference call with reporters.

Although the company hadn’t published a timetable for the software release, some observers had expected the application to be released this December or early 2006. However, Microsoft is still on track to ship Vista in the second half of 2006.

Amitabh Srivastava, a corporate vice president with Microsoft’s Windows unit, said that the firm is actually picking up the development pace.

“We are accelerating development to get most features done by the end of December and all features integrated early next year,” Srivastava said.
