Microsoft introduced the second beta version of Vista, the next version of the Windows desktop operating system, at its WinHec hardware conference in Seattle last week.

Application Compatibility Toolkit 5.0 was also released at the conference. The toolkit is designed to help minimise compatibility issues when rolling out a new Windows operating system.

The beta 2 of Windows Server Longhorn was also made available to more than 500,000 people.

Speaking at the conference, Bob Muglia, senior vice-president server and tools business at Microsoft, said, “To help customers streamline the management of their virtual environments, we are developing a product called Microsoft System Center Virtual Machine Manager.”

He said Microsoft plans to release a public beta of Virtual Machine Manager in the next 90 days.
