But Windows XP Service Pack 1 (SP1) will consist of more than just bug fixes: The company tells me that it will contain new Mira and Freestyle technology, a number of changes required by its proposed settlement with the US Department of Justice, and any critical updates that have been issued since XP shipped last Fall.

"Microsoft is working towards delivering Service Pack 1 for Windows XP in the second half of this year," the representative said. "SP1 will roll up critical updates and contain enabling technologies for 'Mira' and new types of PCs like the Tablet PC and the 'Freestyle' enabled PC. It will also include the changes required by the consent decree with the DOJ and the nine states. More information about SP1 will be available soon."
