The Nation Press -

Las Vegas - (AP)- Microsoft's next version of the Windows operating system is almost ready for prime time.

That was one message chief executive Steve Ballmer delivered on the eve of the official opening of the International Consumer Electronics Show.

The world's largest software maker also announced deals to make its Live Search programs the default search engines on more personal computers and mobile phones.

And it showed off a new version of its Ford Sync in-car technology that folds in the voice-operated directory service TellMe, which Microsoft bought in 2007.

For years, the opening keynote at CES belonged to Microsoft chairman Bill Gates, whose status as industry pioneer justified the sweeping visions of the future he'd build into his speech.

Gates passed the mantle on when he stepped down from day-to-day operations at Microsoft last summer, and Wednesday marked Ballmer's first time making the address.

Ballmer said Microsoft would continue to more in research and development than its peers. The CEO said that a nearly final "beta" test version will be available today.
