Microsoft Will Not Release Vista SP1 Until March

While Microsoft was getting very excited at the prospect of having a product ready to deliver, some people from QA had other thoughts. Apparently, Vista SP1 is not ready for prime time, and Microsoft does not think it will be ready until roughly March. Ironically, the thing that made QA think twice about unleashing Vista SP1 was a report declaring that Vista might have quite a few driver incompatibilities with current machines. And so, instead of finding themselves in the contempt of hundreds of thousands of gamers, hardware enthusiasts, and system integrators everywhere, Microsoft is working hard to make Vista SP1 a very competent product.Source: Neowin.net

Also to note, the Windows Feedback Program that a few around here managed to get in on will end it's 3 month run on 3/11/08. Just in time for them to ship out those free copies of Vista Ultimate... With any luck it'll come with SP1

This means that Microsoft can make sure everything is working fine before it comes out!

well they have always had the chance to do this but never seem willing or capable of doing it.

if they are holding back it must have a serious bug needing to be fixed because MS never had problems handing out half finished buggy updates before.

i hope you are right and they are trying to get it right for a change.
