Microsoft says it's on the verge of releasing its next-generation Windows 7 .. to replace the much criticised Vista.

The nearly-final version of Windows 7 will be released today .. allowing companies to begin tailoring software or hardware to the operating system.

It features compatibility with touch-screen computer controls and is designed to work with earlier-generation Windows XP.

It comes after critics lambasted Vista for being too complex .. and not being compatible with older software programs.
