Vista SP1 accidentally released yesterday


Anyone get Vista SP1 via Windows Update yesterday? Apparently someone at Microsoft accidentally made the update available for a little while — can you believe it?

Here’s what ZDNet’s Adrian Kingsley-Hughes was able to get out of a spokesperson.

“…Today, a build of SP1 was posted to Windows Update and it was inadvertently made available to a broad group. The build was intended only for our more technically advanced testers, and was meant to only be offered to those with a specific registry key set on their PC. For general availability, we are still planning to make SP1 broadly available in the mid-March timeframe.”
