Microsoft Corp. will drop a much-touted new technology for organizing and storing data when it releases the next version of its Windows operating system as expected in 2006.

Tom Button, corporate vice president for Windows product management, said the company hopes to release the new Windows version, code-named Longhorn, in the second half of 2006, about five years after the release of the current version, Windows XP (news - web sites).

With Longhorn, Button said Microsoft plans to improve the way people find things like e-mails, photos and documents. But in formally announcing the release date, the company said it would not be ready to include an even more advanced system for sorting, storing and finding data. Instead, it will begin testing that system about the same time it releases Longhorn and make it available at an unspecified time later.

Not only that but MS plans to also start using a automatic software update for vendors. Which means the MS browser will to be used to use the vendors program. So, if a new yearly license is needed the user won't be able to use that app without paying to update the license because the browser won't work without the new license. It will probably take some time for vendors to use this method but eventually most will if not just about all!
