    <DIV>Attendees at Microsoft's Professional Developer Conference on Tuesday morning got to see the first live public demonstration ever of Windows Vista and Office 12 running together. Both of these products are still under development and due for release in the second half of 2006.

    The new UI that runs across the top of the screen is known as Ribbon and replaces the traditional menus and toolbars with a set of highly graphical command tabs that correspond to the tasks that people want to accomplish, Gates said.

    He also talked about the developer opportunities associated with the extensible user interface and open XML file formats.

    Office 12 would be released in the same timeframe as Windows Vista, Gates said</DIV>
