Vista SP1: What’s New?

Vista SP1: What’s New?

Yes, you read that right! Today is the day you’ve all been waiting for. According to all the e-mails and phone calls I’ve gotten in the last couple of weeks about the new Service Pack 1 for Windows Vista, you all are getting a little anxious about its release. I won’t lie, I’m excited about it too, but even though I’ve been checking up on it everyday, I haven’t been able to find much information on it. That is, until now. I was able to find bits and pieces of new information about the Vista SP1, so if you’re interested, keep reading for the latest scoop!

Now, before I say anything else, I want to make it clear that all of the information I was able to find is, in a way, based on a rumor. Basically, Microsoft has not given the final word on when the SP1 will officially be released, so everyone else is starting to guess. What’s being said gives the rest of us a little more hope though that it will be sooner than later! Several online publications are saying the Vista SP1 will be released on February 15, 2008. And while that date is not unlikely, Microsoft is still only saying it will be out during the first quarter of the year. Either way, that means the finished product should be released within the next month or so.

As of right now, the SP1 RC (Release Candidate) is still making its rounds and there’s word that Microsoft won’t do anything else until they’re sure there are no problems with that. It seems as if the RC is a strong release though, so there shouldn’t be too many problems with it. Therefore, not much else should be holding the final release back. Several Microsoft partners have said they expect it to be out soon as well. So, while I can’t give you an exact release date, at least you know it is getting closer. And as always, I will continue to keep you updated on any Vista SP1 news that comes my way. Hang in there, my Vista friends!
