Microsoft Announces New Operating Systems

Yesterday (October 27th, 2008) Microsoft unveiled details of two new operating systems. Currently the most commonly used Microsoft operating systems are Windows XP and Windows Visa. Although Frequently criticized, often by those who have never used it, Vista is actually a very stable, rich, environment in which to work, particularly when used with up-to-date machines.

Nevertheless, Microsoft has decided to press ahead with successors for Vista. In late 2009 Windows 7 will be released. It will be much like Vista. Around the same tim, Microsoft will release Windows Azure, an operating system that lives on Microsoft servers and not in your computer. This is called Cloud Computing, the "Cloud" being the Internet. Basically this means that you wont need and operating system or programs: they will all live in the "Cloud."

Whether this works out or not, remains to be seen. However, many companies are already trying this, both with Microsoft and with Google products.

"Cloud Computing" is one of the most used technology buzz words at present.
