Intel: Windows Vista SP1 arrives in October-November

Posted on Friday, April 20 2007 @ 11:38:42 CEST by

During the Q&A part of Intel's earnings conference call on Tuesday, Paul Otellini was asked how Windows Vista would impact Intel's 2007 sales projections.

While answering this question, Otellini spilled the beans on the release date of the first service pack for Windows Vista:
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.

"It's too early to provide any firm date range for SP1's delivery," a company spokeswoman said today. "We will continue to take customer feedback from programs like the TAP [Technology Adoption Program], and will ultimately determine an official delivery date as the service pack is nearer to completion."
