I guess I wasn't so wrong after all. Dell is offering XP again...
Like I said... wait for the 1st service pack.
SP1 is out already, probably need SP2.
SP1 isn't "out" already, though it is in testing. It is scheduled for general release in the third quarter.
Intel CEO spills beans on Vista SP1 release schedule
Friday, 20 April 2007
ImageAnswering a question about Vista and its impact on Intel's earnings forecast, CEO Paul Otellini spills, 'probably October-November'
Microsoft Corp. won't pin a timetable on the first major update for Windows Vista, but one of its most important partners, Intel Corp., doesn't have a problem naming dates.
During the Q&A portion of an earnings conference call Tuesday, Intel CEO Paul Otellini was asked how Vista sales would impact his company's 2007 sales projections. Otellini began his answer with the by-now-standard explanation that enterprises haven't jumped to the new operating system.
"Most companies will act like Intel," he said. "They're doing some pilots and testing today."
But as he continued, he named a rough release date for Vista Service Pack 1 (SP1). "But the [Vista] deployment [in enterprises] will actually happen when the Service Pack gets released in the fourth quarter time frame, probably the October-November time frame," said Otellini.
Although Microsoft has confirmed that SP1 is in the works, it has refused to name a release date or peg it to a particular quarter. That didn't change -- even after Otellini's leak.
