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.
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.
