Windows XP SP1 Alpha shipped to OEMs

Thanks to oqwarrior for the heads up.

From C|Net, Windows XP Service Pack 1 alpha builds have shipped to OEMs and eventually will include many enhancements to the core OS as well as the usual bug fixes we are used to seeing with a service pack. Such enhancements include:

  • Support for the Mira technology.

  • Ability for OEMs to remove more middleware technologies. This includes Media Player, Internet Explorer, Windows Messenger.
No matter which remedy emerges as the final one, Windows XP Service Pack 1 will give consumers their first taste of the fruits of the antitrust case.
