It's unusual, but confirmation of the availability of Windows Vista's first service pack came not from Microsoft Corp., but from the U.S. Department of Justice.

Tucked into the government's 27-page joint status settlement report released late Tuesday was evidence that Microsoft will put the beta of Vista SP1 into users' hands before the end of the year. The report also confirmed Windows XP SP3, but did not specify beta or final release dates, although it said some code would be finalized this summer.

Whether or not Microsoft had officially mentioned it, according to some sources the SP1 was due at the end of 2007 to begin with. MS are supposedly using the compatibility issue with Google Desktop Search to push the entire service pack schedule back. So if you want someone to blame for the lateness of SP1, blame Google. ;)
