  4. Supposed to be soon, first quarter 2008.

  5. The answer to both questions is the same: when Microsoft deems that
    they are ready. No promises have been made.

    That said, both are widely expected to be fairly soon. I expect to see
    both within the next few months.

    But I wouldn't recommend betting the farm on it.

    wouldn't you want them to come out when they are fully tested?
    I would rather wait for this then to get something that would totally hose
    my system

  7. Certainly I would rather wait. Did I say anything that led you believe

    I agree! I would also wait for a SP that needs no more updates!

    Neither DOS, nor Win 3.1 is updated, maybe one of those would be better
    for you. Heck, even 95 or NT4 might work.

  14. Wow. Let me tell you that DOS & Win 3.11 runs like snot on ice on a new
    PC!!! Just no drivers for anything...

    Just how well does "snot on ice" run?

  16. I wish folks would stop giving blanket recommendations to install the
    beta versions of SP1 and SP3. The newsgroups, blogs and listservs are
    filled with situations where people went ahead without knowing what they
    were getting into or preparing for problems. I've seen at least one
    where the user can't even load Vista after installing SP1....

    SP1 (and SP3) should only be installed by those who know what they are
    getting into and should *NEVER* be installed on a production machine
    unless the person is prepared to rebuild or restore the system from

  17. Huh??? When has MS *EVER* not updated after a service pack? If you wait
    for that, you will never install a service pack, ever....

    will vista sp1 requst user to re-activate his vista?
    Sean, Jan 27, 2008
  20. I heard Vista SP1 will be out soon, possibly Tuesday January 29th. They
    aren't forcasting any big changes, just the usually service pack including
    updates and security patches all bundled into one neat download.
