Longhorn will feature 'secure' components
Microsoft on Wednesday warned developers at its WinHEC conference that changes continue to be made in the security technology component it plans for next-generation PCs.
Responding to reports that it had decided to scrap plans for a security-focused architecture for Longhorn, its next version of Windows, the software giant stressed that it still aims to get major features into the OS.
"I can't speak to what (the features in) Longhorn will be," Mario Juarez, a product manager for Microsoft's Security Business and Technology Unit, told ZDNet UK sister site CNET News.com via phone on Wednesday. "I can tell you that... we are definitely aiming to have these features in the Longhorn time frame." Longhorn is set for release in the first half of 2006.
