Ballmer flags security for a pre-Longhorn 'Release 2'

Monday, 25 October 2004, 1:26 PM EST

Speaking at the Gartner Symposium and ITxpo 2004 in Orlando, Florida, yesterday, Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer outlined new security initiatives, some of which would make it into a pre-Longhorn 'Release 2' for Windows, next year.

He described Longhorn as a 'wave' of technologies, rather than a single product, in line with a change in company strategy from 'being completely vision-driven to saying now let's decide what we're going to ship in this date, and then what we'll ship beyond that'.
