I don't know too much about the release of Service Pack 1, but I thought some might find it interesting that a Vista update I did today (KB929729) says "Security Update for Microsoft .NET Framework, Version 1.1 Service Pack 1." I can't recall how the Service Packs were released in XP, and what preceded their release, but could this be a sign that SP1 is coming sooner rather than later for Vista? Pardon me if this update is irrelevant to the actual complete SP1 release.
Ok, cool, thanks. I don't know much about the process of Windows' updates, so I wasn't sure if their stamping that title on the .Net update meant anything towards a complete update. I guess we'll wait until early next year for the OS update, but Vista is running pretty good otherwise.
