No Vista SP1 Until 2009?


Say it ain’t so, Microsoft. Lest Vista become a waterslide away from me that takes me further every day. Say it ain’t so.

Rumors are currently flying about that Vista’s first service pack (SP1) won’t be available until 2009. That’s impossible…or is it?

Valleywag reports that “Microsoft has apparently told executives at one of the world’s largest PC makers not to expect a formal release of Windows Vista SP1 — the first major set of upgrades and bug fixes to its Vista operating system — until 2009 at the earliest.”

This might explain the comments from Acer CEO Gianfranco Lanci from earlier today. Disappointing indeed.
