Vista SP1 arriving sooner for some

Microsoft’s Mike Nash has announced a change in the dates of Vista Service Pack 1 availability for technical customers:

  • Late Friday we made SP1 RTM available to individuals and companies who participated in the SP1 beta program
  • At the end of this week we will be making the English version of Windows Vista SP1 available to Volume Licensing customers.  Other languages will follow soon after
  • Later this month, SP1 will be available to MSDN and TechNet Plus subscribers

I can confirm that the downloaded packages are already on Connect for beta testers. It’s good to see MSDN and TechNet customers get some respect.

  1. Call me happy now. As a technet subscriber, I normally like to go ahead and get the future apps to start testing ASAP, before getting blindsided. I am glad MS relented on this one.
