Vista SP1 by November 2007

 1:20 am on Jul 10, 2007 (gmt 0)

There were reports from Microsoft that Vista's first Service Pack would be delayed due to Google asking for changes to the Instant Search feature in Vista. However, they now appear to have reverted to their initial shipping schedule in November.

Vista SP1 beta 1 to launch in mid-July [blogs.zdnet.com]
Just when Microsoft had customers, partners and competitors all believing that it was going to delay the first service pack for Vista not releasing a first beta of it until just before year-end the company is set to deliver Beta 1 of Vista SP1 in mid-July.

Word (from various sources who asked not to be named) is Microsoft is gearing up to drop Vista SP1 some time the week of July 16. And despite what Microsoft seemingly led Google, the U.S. Department of Justice and other company watchers to believe, the final version of Vista SP1 is sounding like November 2007.

It will be interesting to see how many of the bugs I've found (as a programmer) that they fix. I found another whopper last night (when the "runas" verb is used to launch a process with admin rights, it ignores the directory specification - how do bugs like that appear in release code?).

I'm interested in the bugs fixed as well. If I recall a lot of the complaints about XP started to tone down after the first service pack as well.

I also think a lot of people have been advised simply to wait until SP1 before implementing this OS. We may see a slight surge on the Vista uptake after this is released.

That means I need to wait until November (at least) before loading up Vista...
