Vista SP1 spotted in the wild!

    Neowin and WinFuture.de have reported that Microsoft had a first version of the SP1 (pre-pre-alpha or similar) installed on a PC at WinHEC. They used that version to showcase a new technology called "Windows Rally"! Windows Rally is going to make it easier to connect to external devices of any kind. WinFuture guesses that the SP1 is going to include that new technology for the first time...

    The two screenshots:

    It's called Windows Longhorn Server Beta 3. When Windows Server goes gold the enhancements made to it will go back to Vista.

    Windows Update will have all the bits, so for those of us running Vista there will be no SP1.

    Anyone who buys a new PC at Christmas will have all the updates installed.

    I wonder if it's going to be just a load of fixes or also new features, like SP2 for XP.

    Zippy and eagle, I wouldn't make any assumptions just yet Smiley

    When I look at the version string of Windows LH server beta 3 I see: "Build 6001, Service Pack 1". It's not an assumption.

    There could be new features in there but I'm not saying anything about that.

    I was talking more about the "rolling back" part Smiley

    Actually, they have publicly stated that Vista Service Pack 1 and Longhorn Server will be built from the same code base, and that code tree will be the primary tree going forward.  Unless they've changed their minds since then, but I doubt they have (that's a pretty big thing to say in public if you're not sure about it).

    Yep. There's no "rolling back" going on, it's all the same codebase...

    Ok, so what do you mean by "what do you mean"? Smiley

    The changes made in LHS source tree will be merged into Vista SP1, and I think the "rolling back" thing is a confusion over terminology.

    I just was confused about "Rolling back". Rolling back usually means to undo something. Like reverting to previous state or something along those lines.Cool

    I think using "retrofit" is much more appropriate in this semantical context:D

    Ow jeez guys. Of course I meant that Vista SP1 will be on the same codebase as Server. I said 'go' back not rolling back.
