It’s official: We are now in the under-promise and over-deliver era at Microsoft.

Just when Microsoft had customers, partners and competitors all believing that it was going to delay the first service pack for Vista — not releasing a first beta of it until just before year-end — the company is set to deliver Beta 1 of Vista SP1 in mid-July. [more]


This Service Pack was also expected to include an entirely new kernel (the root code of the operating system) that will bring it into line with its more secure big sister Windows Server, when the next version of that, is released at the same time...but it dznt seem to be happening !

Or slightly closer to home, also reported right here in the DaniWeb blogs

Sorry for the repost my friend!
