Microsoft testing version of Windows for older PCs

Microsoft on Thursday confirmed it is developing a new Windows-based operating system aimed at companies that want to better secure their older machines.

Code-named Eiger, the product is "in the very early stages of product development and testing," a Microsoft representative said.

Microsoft said the product "is intended for customers that are unable to purchase new hardware but want the benefits of MicrosoftÂ’s current security and management technologies."
