Filed under: — By Aviran Mordo @ 8:41 pm

Bill Gates on Wednesday will show an avid tech audience the long-awaited major upgrade to Microsoft Corp.’s Windows operating system, called Vista, as the electronics industry’s biggest U.S. conference kicks off.

Gates, Microsoft’s co-founder and chief software architect, speaks on Wednesday afternoon and is a veteran keynote speaker at the Consumer Electronics Show, or CES, held annually in Las Vegas.

A dozen industries are convening in Las Vegas this week for the industry’s annual confab to show off the latest electronic gadgets as they angle for a bigger share of a $122 billion industry.

On Wednesday, Gates takes the wraps off the operating system’s user interface, and his presentation is expected to focus on the consumer-related features of Vista, such as moving video, music, movies and other digital content easily among PCs and devices.
