As we edge closer towards the release of Microsoft's first service pack for Vista, Microsoft see fit that it's safe now to let everyone know what they are working on exactly and the sorts of benefits we'll see with the SP1 implementation.
Further to this, the release date has been rounded off to a definitive quarter 1 2008 period, this to be the same period that MS will apparently release the third service pack for Windows XP.
Now is the time and the time is now: let's talk about Windows Vista Service Pack 1 (SP1). Much has been made of what will or will not be included in SP1 and when it will be released (some accurate, some otherwise). I'm here to set the story straight: we're in the process of developing and deploying a Beta version of SP1. This post will describe for you what to expect from that effort and how you can be involved in the process.
