Windows Vista SP1 won't hit till Mid-March

Contrary to rumors going around the web regarding an alleged screencap of an internal Sharepoint site listing the Vista SP1 release date, it's going to be a while before the masses see SP1. Biplab Paul a Technical Consultant at Microsoft has made a post on his blog detailing the roll out of SP1.

When will SP1 be shipped?

  • Mile Stone 1 (Feb 4, 2008): Available to OEM and Retail Channel
  • Mile Stone 2 (Early March 2008): Vista SP1 Volume Licensing Availability
  • Mile Stone 3 (Mid March 2008): Vista SP1 availability through Windows Update/MSDN/TechNet
  • Mile Stone 4 (April 2008): Will be pushed via Automatic Update
