Microsoft announces RTM for Windows Vista SP1 and Windows Server 2008
Microsoft is announcing that Windows Vista Service Pack 1 (SP1) is being released to manufacturing and will start being available to customers in March, starting with Microsoft Volume Licensing customers

Microsoft Windows Server 2008 is also being released to manufacturing at the same time and will be available to new customers on 1st March 2008. Microsoft Volume Licensing customers with active Microsoft Software Assurance coverage or an Enterprise Agreement will be able to download the new Server software toward the end of February as part of the joint Microsoft SQL Server 2008 and Visual Studio 2008 Heroes Happen Here launch event

The company is positioning Windows Vista SP1 as a very important milestone for its flagship operating system for consumers and office users. Microsoft says over 100 million licenses were sold and over 2500 are certified as working with the operating system.

According to Microsoft, Windows Vista SP1 delivers improvements that address many key pieces of customer feedback, especially in the areas of compatibility, performance and reliability.

OEM partners will begin producing PCs with SP1 pre-installed from March or April 2008. Retail stores will start selling boxed product of Windows Vista that integrates Service Pack 1 within th same timeframe.

Those enterprise customers who get the software via Volume Licensing should start receiving these in early March 2008.

Current Windows Vista users should see Windows Vista SP1 available through Windows Update in mid-March as well having this available through the download links on the microsoft.com website.

In April 2008 Windows Vista SP1 will be available as an automatic update.

During tests Microsoft has identified some conflicts with existing drivers. The problem is generally solved by simply uninstalling and reinstalling the affected drivers. While this is something more experienced users can do - and then manually install the update, Microsoft will make these updates invisible for those affected users.

As solutions for this problem become available those users will then see the updates appear automatically.
