For those waiting for the final release of SP1, I saw this article in todays The Enquirer.. THE MUCH- AWAITED service pack for Vista could be out any day now, according to the dark satanic rumour mill. Yesterday a Taiwanse news outfit said that SP1 would be released on February 15. According to PC World that date is not unlikely. Microsoft is refusing to confirm the rumours other than saying it would be in the first quarter. Michael Cherry, an analyst with Directions on Microsoft said it was possible and it could be out tomorrow. Other analysts have heard the February 15 date but think the Vole will not confirm it because the current SP1 release candidate is out there and it wants to make sure that there are no problems with it. In fact, SP1 RC is fairly basic and not really much of a development on Vista itself. Those playing around with it say it is a strong release and it really caused them little trouble so there is nothing to stop the Vole letting it go. Some analysts think that SP1 might encourage those who had been holding back from Vista adoption to sign up. Another school of thought says that Microsoft had tainted the whole release and big business will probably wait for Windows 7. More here.
