    According to certain sites, Vista SP1 64bit was available via the update utility(as of 22-02-08). This 'loophole' has now been closed but I just wondered if anyone out there has had any experience of this?

    Hi and welcome woodgnome (cool nic by the way). So the rumours have some truth to them after all.. The same 'rumours' are now saying the loophole is now closed so I guess you had to be quick. When did you actually get the download?



    Just to add...Microsoft have now confirmed it was an 'accident'. I feel that this kind of behaviour is very unproffessional, especially with such a 'blue chip company'. One feels that the term 'just release the damn thing' applies!
