    Microsoft Sets 2006 Target for Next Windows Version

    SEATTLE (Reuters) - Microsoft Corp. (Nasdaq:MSFT - news) said on Friday it will ship the next version of Windows in 2006, but scaled back plans to include a new system for finding and storing information in its flagship operating system.

    software maker has committed to a launch target for the ambitious upgrade to Windows, code-named Longhorn, since shipping the current version, Windows XP (news - web sites), in October 2001.


    Bill Gates (news - web sites), chairman and chief software architect of Redmond, Washington-based Microsoft, is leading the effort to ship the next major upgrade to Windows, which promises to boost the performance of the world's most widely used operating system.

    Nice one. They should add in the dictionary: Target, verb to most likely delay, to happen way after a set date.
