Deploying a new operating system to desktops across an organization can be a time-consuming, expensive and painful process, especially if it means physically commandeering every employee's workstation. That's why most companies try to milk their existing investments as long as possible -- and the reason IT pros might have winced at news of Vista and the thought of rolling it out.

The change is designed to promote the take up of network virtualisation technology, which enables multiple images of an operating system or other software to run in a virtual machine on a server, with only one actual copy of the software being used.

Microsoft announced a new software update for its Windows XP Media Center Edition 2005, but did not issue a complete operating-system overhaul as the company has done for the past few upgrades.
 
The company unveiled the changes, called "Update Rollup 2" at the DigitalLife conference in New York. Analysts already have noted that the update is fairly minor despite a few compelling new features.

The most notable upgrade -- a link to the forthcoming Xbox 360 video-game console --

The availability of code capable of exploiting a critical vulnerability in Windows 2000—just one day after the flaw was disclosed as part of Microsoft Corp.'s monthly security updates last Tuesday—lent urgency to efforts by IT managers to patch their systems as quickly as possible.

For instance, the American Red Cross, which in August saw traffic on its networks become saturated by the Zotob worm, was already deploying Microsoft's latest patches last week, according to Ron Baklarz, chief information security officer at the

The move by Microsoft Corp. and Yahoo Inc. to make their instant messaging programs work together comes just as the popular communications tool is beginning to expand into such fields as video chatting and Internet telephone functions.

But for now at least, the two companies said their partnership announced Wednesday will focus on traditional instant messaging, allowing people with either system to send lightning-fast messages to each other. That is expected to be in place by June 2006.

Eventually, the companies said,

If there's one thing I learned from my recent sojourn into the depths of Microsoft Corp.'s future vision, it's that the concept and popularity of open-source software has shaken Redmond to its core. Much of this new vision is the direct result of how Linux and open-source have galvanized the company's management team. This is why Microsoft has upped the feature ante on so many systems at once: to overwhelm customers with new technologies you simply can't get from open-source.
