Windows Vista SP 1 Releasing Monday?

Tech ARP is reporting that Vista SP 1 will be released to the public on Monday via Windows Update. This is the first I’ve heard that SP 1 is being released this week, so we’ll be following this for sure.

Tech ARP:


If you have been waiting for Service Pack 1 for Windows Vista, well, you can now mark your calender. We just received word that Microsoft has scheduled Windows Vista Service Pack 1 for release to manufacturer (RTM) on Monday, February 4, 2008. That’s just 3 days away! The OEMs will also receive Windows Vista Service Pack 1 during that week.

Microsoft will be deploying Service Pack 1 in two "waves". Wave 0, which is the one released on February 4, will only include five languages – English, French, Spanish, German and Japanese. The second wave, Wave 1, is scheduled for release 1-2 weeks later, and will cover all 36 basic languages, including Chinese.

Thanks for the link, Mickey Segal


UPDATE: SP 1 download will be available in March.
