    After hosting several public and private betas of Windows Vista SP1, it would seem as though the final code is finally ready. In fact, the code has supposedly been leaked and put on various torrents. When questioned as to whether or not the leaked code is final, Microsoft people didn't really have much to say. Regardless of whether or not pirates got a hold of SP1, Microsoft declared they made an RTM code earlier today. It is unclear whether or not they will release it today, but sources agree that a launch is imminent.

    The 'leak' is probably just the SP1 beta that Microsoft released with the 'Evaluation Version' message removed

    Yeah propably. Im using the refresh2 now, it works perfectly so im happy with that. But would be fun to test some final sp1 code. There is a safe way to test software, ever heard about Virtualization??? :) VmWare or Virtualbox... Perfect for downloaded content... :)

    yea I know, will just be a massive security fix package with a few optimizers. still any improvement is appreciated.

    however the way things are going - i might skip Vista all together and go with this new code named windows 7. although I'm sure vista has its benefits that i may enjoy later on in the future if i win the lottery and have oodols of cash. :)
