TechArp has received confirmation that Vista SP1 will be released on the 4th of February, only 3days away.. It's being released in two waves, Wave 0: This will include English, French, German and Japanese languages. Wave 1: This will be released 1-2 weeks later and will include 36 basic languages including Chinese. Don't forget, those using a release candidate will have to un-install that copy before installing the final version. For those that can, my advise is to do a clean install of Vista followed by the service pack, drivers and so on. This is the best way to apply any a service pack but perhaps more so with this one as the kernal gets rewritten although I must point out it's not critical to do it this way.. The TechArp web page can be seen here: Tech ARP - ED#77 : Windows Vista Service Pack 1 Out Next Week! Wow, have just seen the link for the download... Much thanks to Bios.. I'm going to give it a go now.. Thanks guys!
