SEATTLE - Microsoft Corp. hopes to have the new version of its Windows operating system available in time for the U.S. holiday season, spokesman Lou Gellos said, narrowing the time frame for the much-anticipated product's release.
Microsoft has long said the new system, called Vista, would be available in the second half of 2006, but Gellos said Tuesday that the company wants to have it in stores in time for holiday shoppers. He declined to give any more detailed guidance. (MSNBC.com is a Microsoft - NBC joint venture.)
