Vista SP1 RC just around the corner?

By Justin Mann on November 30, 2007, 11:44 AM
If the frustrations with Vista are just too much for you to bear but you feel inclined to continue using it in the first place, a breath of fresh air may be just around the corner. While the official release date for Vista SP1 is still into next year, there are reports that a RC might be available in December. Hopefully if a RC is made available it won't be the crude tease that Microsoft “accidentally” made available earlier this month.

For all those looking forward to the bug fix rollups, if not so much the speed boost, a RC would be appreciated, as other beta tests have found no noticeable speed jump for Vista. Keep your eye out for this if you are a Vista user.

Shouldn't Vista SP1 already have been released? Gosh knows everyone seems to think it needs it. I don't understand this delay. It's enough to make a person think that M$ is only in it for the money.

I for one have had a copy of Vista Ultimate 64-bit still sitting in it's box and uninstalled. It's bad enough that there are issues with spare 64 bit drivers without adding in all the bugs and speed issues of the Vista OS itself.It looks like I will wait at least until SP1 is out and possibly even SP2. This OS has not been handled well at all. First, MS releases XP Pro 64 bit edition which actually is a great OS....but it lacks driver support (well, unless you don't mind your wireless not working, and your printer, and your webcam, and...). Then they finally release Vista after much ado and yet they had stripped out most of the promised improvements and innovative new features.When is the next OS due to come out? Perhaps Vista will become the next Windows 2000 which for the most part was passed by in favour of the following OS (XP).
