Microsoft Announces New Upgrading System

Yesterday(October27th 2008) Microsoft unveild details of two new operating systems. Currently the most commanly used Microsoft operating systems are Windows XP and Windows Vista. Although frequently criticized, often by those who havenever used it, Vista is acually 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 time Microsoft will release Windows Azure, an operating system that lives on Microsoft serveres and not in your computer. This is called Cloud Computing, the "Cloud" being the Internet. Basically this means that you wont need an 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 Microsft and with Google products.

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