Coming Soon: Vista SP 1

Coming Soon: Vista SP 1

If you recall, back in May, we ran an article on whether or not Microsoft was going to release a Service Pack for Windows Vista (you can read that tip here). At that time, we knew a SP 1 was in the works, but there was no other information available about it. Plus, we had no idea when it would actually be released. Well, I promised to keep you updated on this and that’s exactly what I intend to do! Since then, things have changed a little. Let’s check it out!

As of right now, it looks like the Vista SP 1 will be released sometime during the second half of the year, with it likely being in October or November of 2007. Although Microsoft has already made calls to other companies asking them to test the new SP 1 and give them feedback on it, they are still keeping a specific release date quiet. But don’t panic, because asking for feedback is always a good sign when it comes to new security features. That means it’s well on its way to being released!

Now, while there is some news about the release date, there really hasn’t been anything else said about the features that will be included with the SP 1. It seems like Microsoft is keeping all of this as much of a secret as they can, but have no fear, I will continue to keep you updated on this whole situation. I know a lot of you have been waiting for this Service Pack to become available before you upgrade to Windows Vista and that’s perfectly fine. If you haven’t upgraded yet, it’s probably best to just keep on waiting. The SP 1 will be here soon and like I said, I will keep you posted!
