    It’s no secret that many XP users are holding off any OS upgrades until they see the improvements that Vista’s first service pack will have to offer, but Intel CEO Paul Otellini has given quite a firm indication of when that should be. During an earnings conference, Otellini let the release date slip when saying "…the [Vista] deployment [in enterprises] will actually happen when the Service Pack gets released in the fourth quarter time frame, probably the October-November time frame." Microsoft still refuses to give any details itself about when we can expect to see SP1 for Vista, but assuming there are no major delays in its production, it’s looking very likely we could see it before next year. As of yet, there are no concrete details about what issues the service pack will deal with, but Microsoft has already hinted that Vista’s service packs won’t be nearly as major as those provided for Windows XP.

    Do what I did send it back to Microsoft for a refund. That's how they'll get the message. :nutkick:

    I have Vista and was contemplating on partitioning and loading it up on a separate partition. Thats a long way away for a service pack though. Wasnt XP SP1 out in like two months after XP itself came out?

    According to this site, Microsoft released SP1 on September 9, 2002 and Windows XP was released October 25, 2001. So that's 11 months before SP1 showed up.
