Vista Service Pack Out This Year

Congrats. You might be able to move to Vista this year after all, as the first SP is due in '07, according to recent reports. Don't expect any groundbreaking new features, as the service pack is expected to focus largely on fixes.

Some in IT are more concerned with the long-overdue XP SP3, as that 5-year-old OS will continue to dominate for years to come.
