Windows Vista

Windows Vista is a line of operating systems developed by Microsoft for use on personal computers, including home and business desktops, laptops, tablet PCs, and media center PCs. Prior to its announcement on July 22, 2005, Windows Vista was known by its codename “Longhorn.”

On January 30, 2007, it was released worldwide, and was made available for purchase and download from Microsoft’s website.

The release of Windows Vista came more than five years after the introduction of its predecessor, Windows XP, the longest time span between successive releases of Microsoft Windows desktop operating systems.

It was succeeded by Windows 7 which was released to manufacturing on July 22, 2009 and is scheduled for general availability on October 22, 2009.
