The existing Windows Vista Beta 2 on the market will be joined by an update of the operating system Microsoft plans to be released this week. The announcement was made as many other at Microsoft's Velocity worldwide partner conference in Boston on Tuesday. According to the Redmond's Company representatives, the new product will be available to Technet subscribers by the end of this week.

With the new interim release Microsoft aims at enhancing the software's performances as hardware resource consumption is concerned. Sources within the company have advised user to test the new interim on machines with a recommended 512 Megabytes of memory.

"Vista in its beta form is pretty taxing on the system. It's slow and a little non-responsive," said Mike Sievert, corporate vice president of Windows client marketing at Microsoft. "That piece of software is now about nine weeks old and that may not sound like a lot but at this stage, that's an old version in software terms. You'll see a huge difference.”

"One thing that's different about Vista is that it's hardware aware and scales itself based on available hardware. A great example [of this] is the Aero user experience part of the Premium version," Sievert said, noting that the user interface feature is self-enabled. "It's a way to allow Vista to provide richer and more immersive experiences."
