Looks like Microsoft are holding true to their word for a Q1 release of Vista's first service pack. Apparently things are shaping up very well and at this rate they should be able to release it within just a few weeks from now.
For more information on how the progress is going, take a look at this article over at InfoWorld.
Microsoft has said the highly anticipated service pack would be out in the first quarter of this year, but some say it could be available in the next few weeks, more than a month before the quarter ends on March 31.
A Taiwanese news outlet Wednesday reported in a story that Vista SP1 would be released Feb. 15, but "that date is as good as any other," said Michael Cherry, an analyst with Directions on Microsoft. "For all we know, they could make it available tomorrow."
