Software developers eager to get their first look at Microsoft Corp.'s next-generation operation system will get their wish this week, even though final versions of the products are still at least two years away. Attendees at the company's professional Developers Conference this week in Los Angeles will be treated to the first to this first technical preview and a software development kit for the next Windows client, code-named Longhorn, sources close to the Redmond, Washington-based company said. The Longhorn client is not expected before late 2005 or early 2006 and will be followed by the Longhorn server and Office releases.
