    Windows Vista SP1 released to manufacturing

    Microsoft has announced that its Service Pack 1 for Windows Vista has today been released to manufacturing. Don't start checking Windows Update just yet though, it won't be served out via Microsoft's auto update tools until mid-March.

    could this be the gift from heaven for those PC manufacturers?

    Re: Windows Vista SP1 released to manufacturing

    Anyone know if Vista certified hardware drivers are guaranteed to work on Windows Server 2008?

    So has it leaked yet?

    Hopefully it'll turn up on MSDN quite soon then.

    There are some drivers that cause issues, Microsoft will not be automatically rolling it out to machines that have those drivers installed. It'll be available from the download centre soon.

    Poor old MS - driver issues have really been their biggest issue with Vista.

    My understanding is, that they will hold off the automatic roll out, until they've got some better code for detecting the effected 'off specification' drivers.

    Preventing people from automatically having their system messed up... in thoery.

    Worth delaying automatic deployment for imo.

    Absolutely - I'll be taking a full system image before it gets installed, and there will be LOTS of testing going on before Vista SP1 goes on any of the machines at work. That said I think the decision to hold off auto install on machines with known problematic drivers is a good one, given the number of Vista installs that are no doubt set to "automatically install all updates" (ie the recommended setting). Auto-fudging of machines the kind of publicity that Microsoft will be happy to avoid, I suspect.

    Re: Windows Vista SP1 released to manufacturing

    For MS this SP is politically important - hence the focus on quality rather than speed.

    Re: Windows Vista SP1 released to manufacturing

    Should I think about leaving off buying a copy of Vista until an SP1 version is out then?

    Yes - it'll be less hassle to install a SP1 Vista than a vanilla one and patch it up.

    This *could* be all Vista needs to make it a viable OS for the masses.

    Possibly - it'd be nice to have an integrated version anyway. Of course, you'll probably be able to slipstream SP1 into it later but with it being so close..

    Re: Windows Vista SP1 released to manufacturing

    If it's anything like the RCs, then SP1 can't be integrated manually. You'll need new media.

    There's little to SP1 anyway - it's just a series of patches rolled up with the odd optimisation here and there. Everything in it is just a file replacement, unlike XPs SP2, which in essence rebuilt core parts of the OS.

    What core parts like the kernel (SP1 brings a new one apparently)?
    There's a fair bit in there to be happy about IMHO - at least from the release notes. True there's less to fix than in XP (hence why SP2 was such a beasty) but that's no bad thing in my eyes.
