Yesterday’s rumors were true: Microsoft has released to manufacturing Service Pack 2 (SP2) for Windows Vista and Windows Server 2008 R2.
SP2 hit the torrents on April 28, hours before Microsoft officially announced it was done (via a posting to the Windows Vista Team Blog). It’s tough to say exactly when SP2 will be available for sanctioned download. Originally it was expected by the end of April (which still could happen if Microsoft posts the code to one of its download sites by tomorrow). But it also could slip into early May.
All Microsoft is saying is it will start pushing the final Vista SP2 bits to customers via Automatic Update over the next few months. Customers who aren’t ready for it can use Microsoft’s service-pack blocking tool to postpone the delivery of the SP2 bits from Windows Update and WSUS.
