Microsoft will introduce a beta version of Vista's second Service Pack to the masses tomorrow, this through the means of a customer preview program. The company hopes to get extensive feedback by opening the doors to a much wider audience which will eventually lead to an RTM (release to manufacturing) build somewhere around the vicinity of April next year.
