Hell Has Frozen Over!

The long awaited, much anticipated, outrageously desired download has finally arrived!

No more waiting, no more Beta’s, no more RTM (release to manufacturing)!

This is the REAL DEAL!  *heavy sarcasm (see update)*

Microsoft released yesterday Vista Service Pack 1

Now let’s see how many applications are truly fixed or newly broken.  This is the test bed for all System Administrator’s … is Vista ready to “truly” deploy in the Enterprise?  We all wait for SP1 of Microsoft’s OS (really any MS product) to decide if it will be a smooth upgrade, work with existing applications, upgrade paths, roll-out plans for upgrades, etc.

Beta testers and RTM testers I thank you for your due diligence.  Now it’s our turn.  *evil grin*

>>UPDATE 04/03/2008:
Wow, I thought my sarcasim was dripping here but another blog, “Why am I still typing“, has put me down as “overexcited” instead.


Let me just clarify, I am far from even happy about SP1.  This means many sleepless nights, many broken applications, huge push from the users and exec’s for vista, and a general pain in my err….backside.  Please know, I am probably NOT the Network Manager you want in your company right this moment if you want Vista RIGHT NOW.   If you want to start planning now that SP1 has come out … well we can sit down and discuss.  First lets start with NAP and Windows 2008 and how it integrates with Vista and Windows XP SP3.  Do you see why I shiver?
