Washington, June 8 (DPA) The next version of the Windows operating system will likely arrive in early 2010, officials at Microsoft has said. The most important change to the software, currently dubbed Windows 7, will be its multi-touch technology. Customers will be able to use their fingers to perform tasks such as moving documents or displaying photos right on the touch-ready display.

Windows 7 is based on Windows Vista, Microsoft’s current operating system.

It should therefore run on the same hardware recommended for Vista.
