Microsoft Windows Vista SP1 Beta not to be released this week

Posted on 19-Jul-2007 15:42 | Filed under: News


After much talk from technology media, Microsoft has come forward and confirmed there are no plans for immediate release of a Windows Vista SP1 Beta.

The company has issued the following statement:

"There will be a Windows Vista service pack and our current expectation is that a beta will be made available sometime this year. Service packs are part of the traditional software lifecycle - they're something we do for all Microsoft products as part of our commitment to continuous improvement, and providing early test builds is a standard practice that helps us incorporate customer feedback and improve the overall quality of the product.

Service packs are just one example of the work we do to constantly improve the Windows experience. We also deliver improvements to Windows via Windows Update, which is an excellent channel for providing our customers with the most significant updates as they happen."
