Vista SP1 RTM

So Vista SP1 officially went RTM today with one major headache – it won’t be available for download until mid-March. Microsoft hasn’t said yet what the reasoning here is, but either way I guess that clean install + SP1 I’ve waiting to do will have to wait another month. I don’t understand the holdup since they already made it a year past the official release date of Vista (by a few days) without releasing a service pack. Wasn’t that the point? 🙂

Hi there. My name is Tom Pacyk and this is my small home on the web. I love the intersection of design, technology, and communication, which is a combination that led me to a career in sales and marketing roles at places like Zoom and ServiceNow. They're a bit old now, but I also had the opportunity to publish a couple of books along the way.

Portland, Oregon is home for me, my wife Beth, and our three kids, but I'm actually a Midwestern transplant—I grew up in the Chicago suburbs and went to school at Purdue and Illinois. When I find some free time I'm probably going to concerts, rooting for the Portland Timbers, or working on my Sunshine Burn Photography project.
